The Influence of 3-D Structure on the Propagation of Seismic Waves Away from Earthquakes

Kennett, Brian; Furumura, Takahashi

Description

The seismic records from significant earthquakes are profoundly affected by 3-D variations in crustal structure both in the source zone itself and in propagation to some distance. Even in structurally complex zones such as Japan and Mexico relatively coherent arrivals are found associated with different classes of propagation paths. The presence of strong lateral variations can disrupt the arrivals, and impose significant variations in propagation characteristics for different directions from...[Show more]
