Associated to the scholarship:09/18511-6 - Joint Inversion of Teleseismic Delay Times and Geoid Anomaly Data: New models for the Lower Crust and Upper Mantle of the Paraná Basin., BP.DR


Through this research Project we aim to implement a computational algorithm of joint inversion using teleseismic delay times and geoid anomaly data so that it is possible to model with high-resolution density variations within the mantle beneath the Paraná Basin. (AU)
