Theoretical predictions of teleseismic ground motion from explosions are presented using a deterministic computer model which merges nonlinear shock code calculations in the near-field with seismic code calculations of far-field stress wave propagation through a realistic earth structure. The predicted ground motion given by synthetic seismograms is shown to be in good agreement with observations of body and surface wave motion.
