|Abstract: ||The adaptive mesh double-difference tomography algorithm (tomoADD) was applied to absolute and differential P, S and S–P
data to determine three dimensional VP, VS and VP/VS variations and event locations in southeastern Sicily (Italy).
The obtained velocity images highlight vertical and lateral heterogeneities that can be associated with different geological units
and main tectonic features. In particular, the sharp velocity contrasts are consistent with previously recognized active faults, allowing
us to better determine their shapes and geometries at depth.
Moreover, a striking correspondence between areas ruptured by earthquakes and velocity anomalies is observed. In fact, seismicity
is mostly confined in the high velocity volumes and/or along the high–low velocity boundaries at mid-crustal depths, whereas it
tends to avoid regions with lower than average VP and VS values and higher VP/VS ratios.|
