Special Issue: Seismic anisotropy and shear-wave splitting: Achievements and perspectives


Seismic anisotropy has played a crucial role in investigating the Earth’s interior from the upper crust to the inner core and is a useful tool to study dynamic processes in the Earth’s interior. Shear-wave splitting, one of the most effective way to study seismic anisotropy, can identify the properties and the geodynamics of the upper mantle analyzing core phases, such as SKS and PKS.
