A method of propagating the components of the displacement across interfaces in a multi-layered spherical earth model is presented. It is useful both for explosion sources and tangential dislocation sources, buried in an arbitrary layer of the model. Combined with known techniques, our method yields a useful tool for generating synthetic seismograms for earthquake sources in realistic earth models.
