When geoscientists study the structure and history of old orogens, basins, and cratons, information from teleseismic data may provide important constraints on the present distribution of seismic velocities. The existing networks of permanent observatories are typically quite sparse, so temporary arrays are installed for a limited period of time with carefully designed measurement geometry. A dense grid of stations should ideally be deployed, but logistics, like road access and coastlines, combined with limited resources, commonly result in a distribution of the available seismometers along profiles perpendicular to the supposed strike direction of the target structures. This study focuses on the...
