Fault Related Anisotropy in the Hikurangi Subduction Zone

The magnitude and principal direction of seismic azimuthal anisotropy provide key constraints on the deformation processes occurring within the Earth. Although this technique has been successfully applied to a variety of geological settings, high-resolution, three-dimensional anisotropic P-wave velocity model of the shallow part of a subduction zone was never yet achieved.
