Abstract:

Nafes presentation of reflection and transmission coefficients at a solid-solid interface was used to compute tables for the case of ice in contact with another solid at a plane interface. Energy ratios of all the combinations of reflected and refracted plane P and S waves were computed for 30 different cases of the second solid. A compressional velocity of 3.6 kmsec, a density of 0.9 gcu cm, and a value of 13 for Poissons ratio were assumed for the ice. For the other solid, the velocity ranged from 1.2 to 6.0 kmsec, the density from 1.5 to 3.0 gcu cm, and Poissons ratio from 0 to 13. The computations were carried out with an electronic computer, and the results are presented graphically. Author
