Title: Validation of Western North America Models based on finite-frequency and ray theory imaging methods

Abstract

We validate seismic models developed for western North America with a focus on effect of imaging methods on data fit. We use the DNA09 models for which our collaborators provide models built with both the body-­wave FF approach and the RT approach, when the data selection, processing and reference models are the same.
