Modeling the Effects of Oblique Subduction on Mantle Wedge Seismic Anisotropy

by  Lindsey Kenyon and Ikuko Wada

This poster shows the results of forward modeling 3D mantle wedge flow, olivine crystal preferred orientation and shear wave splitting parameters in cases of generic oblique subduction. The models are used to predict the sub-arc splitting parameters for generic subduction zones with varying amounts of obliquity.
