Abstract

The lithospheric structure in Oman has been determined by analyzing teleseismic P-receiver functions recorded at broad-band and short-period seismic stations of the Oman Seismological Network. Lithospheric structure is obtained by jointly inverting receiver functions and Rayleigh wave group velocities derived from continental-scale surface wave tomography of Pasyanos. We observe relatively thick crust (40-48 km) within the ophiolite formed mountains in northern Oman. The crustal thickness is about 35 km within the passive continental margin of the southern Oman region. Uppermost (
