            Content of this download archive

              - this file
              - contains the P and S-vel models on a regular radius, lat, long grid
              - columns are: radius(km) lat(deg) lon(deg) DNA07-P(% Vp anomaly) DNA07-S(% Vs anomaly)
              - plot of the region covered by the model and the station coverage
              - script to run the 3DVisualizer code with included model
            vel1.5.pal vel3.0.pal 
              - color pallets for 3DVisualizer with +/- 1.5% and 3%
              - some (very simple) instructions to get started with the 3DVisualizer

            DNA07-P-S.grid - the model file

            The P- and S-vel models are provided on a regular grid.
            Columns are: radius(km) lat(deg) lon(deg) DNA07-P(% Vp anomaly) DNA07-S(% Vs anomaly)

            Model grid:
              32 deg N to 48 deg N with 0.2 deg node spacing = 81 nodes
              126 deg W to 110 deg W with 0.2 deg node spacing = 81 nodes
              5370 km to 6370 km radius, ie 0 to 1000 km depth, with 25 km spacing = 41 nodes
              grid starts at 5370.  32. -126. ie bottom south west corner
              first scans through longitude to bottom south east corner
              then scans with increasing lattitude
              then scans with increasing radius
              last grid point is  6370.  48. -110. ie the top north east corner

            3DVisualizer - visualization software provided by UC Davis KeckCaves (free)

            This model file can be read the 3DVisualizer.  A run script and color pallets are provided.

            The 3DVisualizer software is available from: http://keckcaves.ucdavis.edu
            It runs on a Mac or Linuz box, is easy to install and use.
