Abstract:

An interpretation scheme has been developed for the determination of laterally homogeneous earth structure using body-wave travel time and amplitude data. A family of px ray parameter vs distance functions consistent with the data are obtained as solutions to an inverse problem. Each px solution has a corresponding velocity-depth function which maximizes or minimizes the depth for one velocity. The family of allowable px curves therefore defines a velocity-depth envelope which bounds the range of earth structures consistent with these data. Author
