    • Abstract

       

      Preliminary analysis of seismograms recorded by a wide band high dynamic range digital seismograph installed under a collaborative research programme between IPG, Paris and NGRI, Hyderabad, indicates that the crust and upper mantle structure below the Indian continent are characterized by high velocity up to a depth of 500 km. Both the group and phase velocities in the period range of 100–350s are found to be faster by 3–4% and 1–3% respectively compared with global models such as the preliminary reference earth model.
