Fig. 5

Configuration of very deep earthquakes and F-net stations, superimposed on crustal thickness (from CRUST1.0—Laske et al. 2013). The stations displayed in Figs. 6, 7 and 8 are annotated and have filled symbols. The zone of conversion from upgoing S to P is indicated for upper mantle propagation (sPn) in darker tones in the left panel and for crustally guided P (lighter tones). The size of the conversion zones increases with source depth
