Near-vertical multiple ScS (S waves reflected at the core-mantle boundary) phases are among the cleanest seismic phases traveling over several thousand kilometers in the Earth's mantle and are useful for constraining the average attenuation and shear wave speed in the whole mantle. However, the available multiple ScS pairs are limited. We took advantage of the recent dramatic increase in the number of global broadband stations and made a thorough computer-assisted search for high-quality data of multiple ScS pairs. We could find 220 station-event pairs which provided us with robust local estimates of average Q (quality factor) and two-way shear wave...
