Dataset Information

description: The lithospheric thickness file includes longitude (radians), co-latitude (radians), and depth of the lithosphere (meters) and a header that defines how many points are in the latitude and longitude directions in the first line. The model was developed by Stewart Fishwick based on the methods published in Fishwick, S. (2010). Surface wave tomography: imaging of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary beneath central and southern Africa. Lithos, 120(1-2), 63-73, doi:10.1016/j.lithos.2010.05.011.
