The travel times of regional P and S for spreading ridges in the European Arctic
The methodology of P-receiver functions was used to determine the crustal and upper mantle structure for two areas in the Euro-Arctic region, namely, the Svalbard archipelago and Franz Josef Land. This made it possible to derive two travel-time tables for regional seismic P and S waves (NOES and Sval). The accuracy of these tables was tested by comparing them with the IASPEI91, BARENTS, and BARENTS3D tables to show that NOES is the optimal choice for earthquake location in the area of spreading ridges in the European Arctic.
