Slab top dips resolved by teleseismic converted waves in the Hellenic subduction zone

Abstract : The variations of the arrival times and polarities with backazimuth and distance of teleseismic P-to-S converted waves at interfaces bounding the slab crust under the upper plate mantle are used to constrain the depth, dip angle and azimuth of the slab of the Hellenic subduction zone. A grid search is designed to estimate the model parameters. Dip values of 16-18°, with an azimuth of 20° to 40°, are thus derived at 3 sites aligned over 50 km along the eastern coast of Peloponnesus. They are consistent with the variation from 54 to 61 km of the slab top depths constrained below each receiver. North of the Gulfs of Corinth and Evvia, a similar depth for the top of the slab is found at a distance from the subduction at least 100 km larger. This suggests flatter subduction of a different slab segment. Such a variation in slab attitude at depth across the region from south of the eastern Gulf of Corinth to north of Evvia is a candidate for the control of the recent or active localized crustal thinning of the upper plate we documented in earlier work, and of the surface deformation.
