Albany–Fraser Experiment (ALFREX)

3D view showing the Moho trough from the southwest and interpreted seismic profiles 12GA-AF1, AF2 and AF3. The Moho surface is produced from Moho picks on the profiles and receiver functions, located at the actual pierce point of the incoming wave

The objective of ALFREX is to delineate the 3D structure of the east Albany–Fraser Orogen and the lithospheric structure below it. This is achieved by using an array of more than 60 passive seismic stations deployed from 2013 to 2016 across the boundary of the Yilgarn Craton and the Albany–Fraser Orogen.

ALFREX is a collaborative project with the Seismology & Mathematical Geophysics research group at the Australian National University’s Research School of Earth Sciences. It is funded by the Australian Research Council (LP130100413 ‘Craton modification and growth: the east Albany–Fraser Orogen in 3D’).
