The aim of the present paper is to propose a method of conditional stochastic simulation of propagation of seismic wave using the spatiotemporal correlation function. The method has been used to generate unknown time histories at various points of ground motion random filed based on the specified earthquake record at one location. The results of the study show that the method considered gives relatively low simulation errors.
