Receiver function analysis is applied to the western part of the Pannonian Basin, a rather complex region both geologically and geodynamically. Previous receiver function analyses in this region had to deal with much smaller station density and time span than those available to us. In the analysis we used the data of some 48 seismological stations. These include not only the permanent stations from Hungary and permanent stations from neighbouring countries (Slovakia and Slovenia), but also the temporary broadband stations that were installed within the framework of the AlpArray project. Having applied rather strict manual quality control on the calculated radial receiver functions we stacked the receiver functions. Using the H–K grid search method we determined the Moho depth and the Vp/Vs ratio beneath the seismological stations in the western part of the Pannonian Basin. The unprecedented density of the AlpArray network, combined with the permanent stations, allowed us to derive high resolution Moho and Vp/Vs maps for the West Pannonian Basin, together with uncertainty estimates. Our preliminary results agree well with previous studies and complement them with finer details on the Moho topography and crustal thickness.

Abstract

Receiver function analysis is applied to the western part of the Pannonian Basin, a rather complex region both geologically and geodynamically. Previous receiver function analyses in this region had to deal with much smaller station density and time span than those available to us. In the analysis we used the data of some 48 seismological stations. These include not only the permanent stations from Hungary and permanent stations from neighbouring countries (Slovakia and Slovenia), but also the temporary broadband stations that were installed within the framework of the AlpArray project. Having applied rather strict manual quality control on the calculated radial receiver functions we stacked the receiver functions. Using the H–K grid search method we determined the Moho depth and the Vp/Vs ratio beneath the seismological stations in the western part of the Pannonian Basin. The unprecedented density of the AlpArray network, combined with the permanent stations, allowed us to derive high resolution Moho and Vp/Vs maps for the West Pannonian Basin, together with uncertainty estimates. Our preliminary results agree well with previous studies and complement them with finer details on the Moho topography and crustal thickness.
