A variety of methods have been applied to estimate lithospheric effective elastic thickness(Te).Scientists have calculated Te of the lithosphere under various features,but there are contradictory results among them.In this paper,accuracy of Te calculated by MWAT(Moving Window Admittance Technique)was analyzed synthetically based on SIO(Scripps Institute of Oceanography)V15.1bathymetry model and a simple lithospheric flexure isostatic model.The Te model of the Northwestern Pacific(15°S—45°N,145°E—215°E)is re-evaluated.We discussed the tectonic setting of the lithosphere in the studied area based on Te and age samples of the seafloor.The theoretical basis for Te estimating is the flexural isostatic model.Te can be established by minimizing the RMS misfit between the observed and theoretical admittance.The theoretical admittance is calculated based on flexural isostatic model.The observed admittance is calculated based on cross-spectral analysis of bathymetry and gravity model.We can calculate Te in twosteps.First,at 20~50km wave bands,the uncompensated theoretical admittance is calculated with differentρc(2300~2900kg·cm3)and d(mean model depth ±500m).The value ofρcand dcan be recovered area by area by fitting the theoretical and observed admittance.Secondly,at wave lengths longer than 50 km,with the recoveredρcand d,the theoretical admittance can be computed for different Te.We can obtain an optimal Te when the RMS misfit between the theoretical and observed admittance is minimized.With the MWAT method,six windows range from 400km×400km to 1400km×1400km are used to estimate Te,using 3Dspectral analysis technique.The final Te is weighted mean of these six results.For comparison,three kinds of bathymetry model are used.They are GEBCO,SIO V15.1and BAT_VGG.BAT_VGG is a bathymetry model formed with ship soundings and vertical gravity gradient anomalies.In our simulations,Te centered on(21°N,157°E)is recovered for different inputted Te(1~50km).The effects of crustal density,Young′s modulus and high order terms are evaluated.The simulated results shown that the accuracy of Te calculated with MWAT method is ±1km for Te5km and the relative accuracy can be better than 10% for Te≥5km.The spatial variations of Te in the Northwestern Pacific are evaluated based on BAT_VGG and altimetric gravity anomaly data from SIO V20.1,with MWAT method.In the Northwestern Pacific,the results show that Teis in the range of 0~50km with a mean of 13.2km and a standard deviation of 6.9km.High Te(20~40km)distributes around the Hawaiian Islands and along the trench outer rise.The trench outer rise has the oldest lithosphere in the studied region,and their rigidity may have been modified by the plates′collision too.Hawaiian-Emperor is an intraplate original Seamount Chain.High Te around Hawaiian Islands is consistent with their formation on old,strong oceanic lithosphere.Te decreases monotonically along the Hawaiian Islands from the south-east end to the north-west end.Te along the northern Emperor Seamounts varies less systematically.Lithosphere around Shatsky Rise has the lowest Te(5km).Shatsky Rise formed at the Pacific-Farallon-Izanagi triple junction during the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous.Magnetic lineations indicate that the lithosphere is young at the time of Shatsky Rise loading.Low Te is consistent with the age of lithosphere at time of loading indicated by magnetic lineations.A wide oceanic basin spread in the south of Hawaiian-Emperor Seamount Chain.The Jurassic lithosphere locates in the west of the basin and has moderate Te(10~15km).In the east of the basin,the lithosphere is formed during Cretaceous and has lower Te(10km).In the studied area,the dependence of Te on the age of oceanic lithosphere at the time of loading is given mostly by the depth to the 150℃~450℃ oceanic isotherm based on a cooling plate model,slightly lower than the depth given by Watts(2001)which is 300 ℃ ~600 ℃.Te of the Cretaceous and Jurassic lithosphere distributes in the 150 ℃~300 ℃isotherm depth.Te of the Cretaceous lithosphere is less than the Jurassic lithosphere.Te of the lithosphere does not increase with the age of lithosphere at the time of loading.The result indicates that Te does not controlled only by the age of lithosphere at the time of loading.The reheating of the lithosphere by thermal activities inner the earth,such as the"super swells"in the South Pacific Ocean,and modification of the lithosphere by fracture zones will decrease the strength of the lithosphere.We can draw the following conclusions from this paper:1 The gravity isostatic admittance in 20~50km wavelengths band will not change significantly with Te.The regional crustal density and mean water depth can be recovered based on the admittance at 20~50km wavebands.2 The simulated results shown that the accuracy of Te calculated with MWAT method is±1km for Te5km and the relative accuracy can be better than 10%for Te≥5km.3 The bathymetrymodel predicted from VGG and ship soundings(BAT_VGG)is superior to GEBCO and SIO V15.1in Te estimating.With BAT_VGG,the mean recovered crustal density is consistent with CRUST2.0.The mean of standard deviation of the misfits between observed and theoretical admittance is5.233mGal/km,and about 56.869% of the grids have the standard deviation which lower than5mGal/km.4 The results show that Teis in range of 0~50km with a mean of 13.2km and a standard deviation of 6.9 km over the Northwestern Pacific.The lithosphere of HawaiianEmperor Chain show relatively high Te.5 Over the Northwestern Pacific,the dependence of Te on the age of oceanic lithosphere at the time of loading is given mostly by the depth to the 150 ℃~450 ℃ oceanic isotherm based on a cooling plate model,slightly lower than the depth given by Watts(2001),which is 300℃~600℃.
