Abstract:

This report presents the results of a theoretical calculation of the teleseismic body and surface waves for the NTS KASSERI explosion, and a detailed comparison of the synthetic seismograms with those recorded at stations of the Special Data Collection System SDCS. This study is a comprehensive analysis of the KASSERI event including modeling of the close-in nonlinear ground motion produced by the explosion, propagation of the resulting seismic waves through the earth and computation of synthetic seismograms at designated teleseismic stations.
