Data Services Products: EMC-MC35 A 1-D modified PEM-C S velocity model

Summary

MC35 reference Earth model is based on the continental Earth model PEM-C . MC35 replaces PEM-C ‘s high- and low-velocity zones of the uppermost mantle (to the depth of 210 km) with a constant shear-wave velocity of 4.5 km/s.
