    We investigate possible effects of neglecting seismic anisotropy on standard isotropic P velocity tomographic images of the upper mantle beneath the Baltic shield. Isotropic inversions of teleseismic P- and S-wave traveltimes exhibit alternating high- and low-velocity heterogeneities down to depths of over 400 km. Differences in tomographic inversions of SV- and SH-wave traveltimes are distinct down to depths of about 200 km and are associated with anisotropy of the lithospheric mantle. Anisotropic structures of the upper mantle affect both the P and S traveltimes, shear-wave splitting as well as the P polarization directions. Joint inversion for isotropic and anisotropic velocity perturbations is not feasible due to the limited 3-D ray coverage of available data.
