Abstract

This paper presents a numerical study of theoretical amplitude spectra of surface Rayleigh and Love waves. These spectra are of obvious interest in any problem connected with surface-wave dynamics: determination of source magnitude or energy, focal depth, and source mechanism and investigation of the resonance properties of layers or of the earth’s structure.
