Abstract : Crust-mantle structure of the Mediterranean sea is studied by phase velocity of Love and Rayleigh waves and by body waves travel time. Two distinct regions are found; a Western Zone between Italy and Spain of oceanic type (crustal thickness about 13 km) not showing low velocity channel in the Upper Mantle, and an Eastern Zone to the South of Greece (crustal thickness about 23 km) with a very thick sedimentary layer.
