Teleseismic shear wave data from stations (triangles) indicate that the upper mantle can be described by two anisotropic layers. The light arrow gives the fast direction in the top layer, the dark arrow the bottom layer.
End member models for the extension of the upper mantle beneath a convergent orogen.
