The receiver function (RF) method isolates the response of local structure from source complexity (the influence of the source and near-source structure) and the heterogeneity of deeper structures along the propagation path. The Ps-RF method is widely used to isolate Ps phases and reverberations ending in an S phase to determine the velocity structure of the crust (Burdick and Langston, 1977; Langston, 1977, 1979; Owens, 1987; Owens and Crosson, 1988; Ammon et al., 1990; Ammon, 1991; Zhu and Kanamori, 2000; Langston and Hammer, 2001) and variation in depth...
