Abstract: Seismic studies of the crustal structure beneath the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR) region in Central China have been limited by the sparse and uneven distribution of seismic stations. To increase the station coverage, we made three deployments of a mobile seismologic array in the TGR region during the three summers from 2008 to 2010. Here we present interpretations along a west-east profile through the central TGR region based on new seismic waveform data and a velocity model constrained by regional earthquake data...
