Abstract:

Observations and theoretical models were carried out to study source properties of earthquakes and explosions and structure and dynamics of the crust and upper mantle. Earthquake sources and the structure of the crust have been studied using seismic travel times and spectral ratios. Nonlinear propagation of waves from underground explosions has been studied numerically. Numerical methods for tectonic flow have been developed and applied to the dynamics of mid-ocean ridges.
