Modelling of seismic waves in heterogeneous media using a wavelet-based method: application to fault and subduction zones

Hong, Tae-Kyung; Kennett, Brian


The wavelet approach to numerical simulation of elastic wave propagation is applied to models with localized heterogeneity, with significant contrasts with their surroundings. We consider zones with both lowered wave speed such as a fault gouge zone and elevated wave speeds such as in a subduction zone. In each of these situations the source lies within the heterogeneity. The representation of the source region has therefore been adapted to work directly in a heterogeneous environment, rather...[Show more]
