چکیده
Crustal anisotropy beneath 11 permanent seismic stations situated at the northern Iran is investigated based on the sinusoidal harmonic fitting to the P-to-S conversions in radial receiver functions from the Moho and an intracrustal discontinuity. This variations of converted phases in stacked R_RF can be announced by fast polarization direction and time delay. In the multilayered anisotropic media the distinct cosine moveout of the radial component can be distinguished for Ps phase in upper crust. The magnitude of crustal anisotropy is found to range from 0.1 to 0.47. Based on lower layer results, central Alborz is subdivided to eastern a western sections.
