The principal targets in our studies on suitable representations for real media, which have been carried out in the Krasnodar Belt, are two thin layers situated at depths of 280 and 1350 m. Strong shear wave reflections from these boundaries were recorded. The present paper gives the results of an interpretation of data on shear wave reflections and the comparison of these results with some theoretical calculations. The principal attention has been paid to the PS wave reflected from the boundary at 280-m depth (t1PS), inasmuch as quite good data were obtained for it. We have studied the PS wave from the layer at 1350-m depth (t2PS) to a lesser extent.
