Abstract

High frequency P-waves are sensitive to small scale structures and sharp transitions within the Earth. In this dissertation I use them to characterise small scale variations in the Earth’s mantle and outer core. I also explore the application of migration techniques to P'P' precursors, as well as investigating precursors to additional seismic phases. The robustness of P'P' precursor observations is ensured through correction for known mantle structures and a combination of linear and non-linear stacking techniques.
