Mantle roots of the Emeishan plume: an evaluation based on teleseismic P-wave tomography

Chuansong He and M. Santosh

Data sets

Waveform data of China National Seismic Network, Institute of Geophysics, China Earthquake Administration Data Management Centre of China National Seismic Network

Short summary
Our work demonstrated that the Emeishan large igneous province was generated by the crustal and/or mantle lithospheric delamination rather than the upwelling mantle plume.
