We argue for and present a reformulation of the seismic surface-wave inverse problem in terms of a thermal model of the upper mantle and apply the method to estimate lithospheric structure across much of the Canadian Shield. The reformulation is based on a steady-state temperature model, which we show to be justified for the studied region. The inverse problem is cast in terms of three thermal parameters: temperature in the uppermost mantle directly beneath Moho, mantle temperature gradient, and the potential temperature of the sublithospheric convecting mantle. In addition to the steady-state constraint, prior physical information on these model...
