Abstract
This thesis focuses on the seismic structure of the lithosphere and upper mantle beneath the western Eger Rift area with the aim of investigating deep-lying possible causes of the phenomena observed at surface. For the investigation, data of the international passive seismic experiment BOHEMA carried out in 2002/2003 was used. The BOHEMA network consisted of 61 permanent and 84 temporary stations and was centred on the western Eger Rift. The resulting large data set allowed a high resolution P and S receiver function study using P-to-S and S-to-P converted waves, respectively, to map seismic discontinuities in the lithosphere and upper mantle. Data from an earlier passive seismic experiment was additionally used to complement the BOHEMA data set. The results of the analysis are described in this thesis ‘from top to bottom’. [...] Furthermore, the first map of average crustal vp/vs ratios is presented for the investigated area.
