S receiver functions of the Northeastern Tibetan Plateau (2009-2016)

The dataset partially used in the study of paper 2018GC007986 includes S receiver functions derived from 48 permanent stations and 11 stations of a temporary HY array deployed in the northeastern Tibetan Plateau.

The dataset as a zipped file contains one folder, two files including NETibet_SRF.QBN and NETibet_SRF.QHD.

A spiking deconvolution in the time domain is used to calculate the P and S receiver functions, all the S receiver functions have been visually inspected to remove the bad traces that obviously different from the majority.

The dataset is applied to explore the lithospheric structure and understand the mechanism of northeastern expansion and growth of NE Tibetan Plateau.

Data file naming and use method

Data folder is named as NETibet_SRF, where NETibet means the northeastern Tibetan Plateau and SRF denotes S receiver functions. Data format is Q-files format which can be processed with the help of Seismic Handler (SH) software.
