									ABSTRACT


  In this study, shear wave velocity structure of the crust and upper mantle across a portion of
Eastern Turkey was obtained with one station method, using group and phase velocity dispersion
of fundamental mode Rayleigh and Love waves.
   The S wave velocity structure of the Eastern Turkey is estimated beneath the 29 broadband
seismological stations that were deployed during the 1999/2001 ETSE experiment.
   Rayleigh wave phase velocity is measured between 10 and 85 second periods. Phase velocity
is 2.75 km/s for 10 second period and it is 3.9 km/s for 85 second period. On the other hand,
Love wave phase velocity is measured between 10 and 50 second periods. Phase velocity is 2.8
km/s for 10 second period and 4.40 km/s for 50 second period.
  According to the results of S wave velocity inversion, it is found that; between 20 and 30 km
depth there is a low velocity layer, which has S wave velocity of approximately 3.4 km/s. The
thickness of the crust is calculated as 45 km. S wave velocity, gradually increases between 30 km
and 45km.
