Average thickness of the deccan traps between Bombay and Koyna from dispersion of short-period Love waves

  • A. N. Tandon


Experimental dispersion curves of short-period Love waves due to three small shocks in the Koyna region and recorded at Bombay have been compared with theoretical computed curves. The results indicate that the average thickness of the traps overlying the granitic basement is about 1.25 km.
