Description:
Abstract:
The database contains estimated crustal thickness in the Middle East. Thickness was constrained by digitizing over 50 published, interpreted crustal-scale refraction and gravity profiles, combined with estimates derived from single stations, surface-wave tomography, and Bouguer gravity data in Iran. In regions where data were limited, Moho depth was determined by interpolating from the nearest data points.
