SplitRacer is a graphical user interface in the MATLAB environment for teleseismic shear-wave splitting analysis. In view of increasingly
large seismological experiments, SplitRacer is designed to process large data sets quickly for which it integrates automatic and user-active steps. This enables a straightforward analysis based on the user’s own quality criteria. SplitRacer offers a number of features designed to ensure precise measurements as well as user-friendliness.
Data can be downloaded directly from all data centers that are part of the International Federation of Digital Seismograph Networks Web Services.
A first automatic data check is followed by visual assessment of the phases in question.
We account for a possible misalignment
The shear-wave splitting analysis is based on the minimum
(transverse) energy method (Silver and Chan, 1991)
SplitRacer provides an
overview of single-phase splitting measurements per station that
can be used to detect azimuthal dependencies.
SplitRacer offers the
possibility to fit models of one or two anisotropic layers or a
model of smoothly varying anisotropy to the observed data.
SplitRacer offers a multiphase joint-splitting analysis for one and two hypothetical layers in which all events at a given station are used simultaneously to constrain the anisotropic
