Mode Theory versus Theoretical Seismograms for a Layered Solid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Spectral transfer functions are computed for a model consisting of one elastic layer over a homogeneous elastic half‐space. Represented in the time domain, the transfer functions are compared with theoretical seismograms for various horizontal distances. The diagnostic diagrams show that the P̄ +‐‐mode, the contribution of which is important in the generation of the PL‐waves, is not the continuation of the first locked shear mode below the cut‐off frequency. 1968 Royal Astronomical Society
