Rayleigh waves are generated at the free surface and decay exponentially with depth (Achenbach 1973; Pujol 2003)

Rayleigh waves are generated at the free surface and decay exponentially with depth (Achenbach 1973; Pujol 2003). With a dense acquisition, one can process them out by signal processing. By changing the free-surface conditions in the elastic modelling, we may avoid the generation of the ground roll.

This page intentionally left blank. Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology Seismology has complementary observational and theoretical components, and a thorough understanding of the observations requires a sound theoretical background. The book covers strain, stress, propagation of body and surface waves in simple models (half-spaces and the layer over a half-space), ray theory for P and S waves (including amplitude equations), near and far fields generated by moment tensor sources in infinite media, and attenuation and the mathematics of causality.

Overall I recommend Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology for an introductory course in theoretical seismology, especially if it is augmented with practical experience. The full text could be comfortably covered over the course of one semester and can serve as a helpful guide to instructors and students alike. ill do well as an intermediate, but concentrated textbook in seismological theory.

Pujol did a very good job to bridge the gap between introductory level seismology book and really advanced Aki .

Pujol did a very good job to bridge the gap between introductory level seismology book and really advanced Aki and Richard. i highly recommend students who are struggling with Aki and Richard to read this book. I particularly love Chapter 9 and 10. It made my life a lot easier to understand moment tensors.

Journal of Seismology 'I enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with the breadth and depth of the material, and how thoroughly the author presented i. .The intermediate-level tutorial nature of the book will appeal to geophysicists and students who want to improve their understanding of elastic wave propagation theory. I recommend it highly. The Leading Edge "I recommend it highly.

Bridging the gap between introductory textbooks and advanced monographs, this book provides the necessary mathematical tools to tackle seismological problems and demonstrates how to apply them. Including student exercises, for which solutions are available on a dedicated website, it appeals to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It is also a useful reference volume for researchers wishing to "brush up" on fundamentals before they study more advanced topics in seismology.
