Abstract:

This project is concerned with the study of amplitudes of seismic waves, particularly for paths across the Eurasian continent. Topics within this framework include studies of the properties of sources within continental regions and near plate boundaries, and also with the attenuation properties of surface waves across stable and tectonic regions. The present report will present some new results of surface wave attenuation studies in Eurasia which were not presented in the previous technical report, and will extent studies of the effects of low-velocity, low-Q sediments on Rayleigh wave amplitudes.
