This site collects and disseminates data generated in a variety of research projects conducted by the CES team at KAUST. These may be simulation-generated synthetic data (and corresponding meta data), or the results of data-analyses and inversions of seismological/geophysical observations.

When using any of these data, please make reference to the appropiate publications(s) listed for each project.

Disclaimer: Although we thrive to be as complete, comprehensive and correct as possible, glitches in the data or problems with the datafile are almost unavoidable. If you encounter any issues, please get back to us right away by email.

Title: 3D-Swave-Structure-KSA

Tang et al. (2016, 2018, 2019) conducted a range of studies on the lithospheric structure beneath Saudi Arabia. The corresponding results and meta-data can be downloaded here.
