A simplified model of the crust and upper mantle of central Chile is developed with P- and S-wave arrival times and is compared with previous gravimetric work on the area. The following structural parameters were determined: crustal P-wave velocity, upper mantle P-wave velocity, crustal thickness and orientation of the plane separating crust and upper mantle. The model obtained here agrees well with those calculated in the gravimetric study.
