Abstract:

Statistical descriptions of variations in P-wave velocity in the earth are related observations in phase, travel-time, and amplitude fluctuations of seismic-wave signals received at teleseismic distances. A number of results have been obtained, including a model for variations down to 250 km under the NOSAR array in Norway, and for variations at a number of locations at the core- mantle boundary. Our final report consists of a list of articles published or submitted during the contact period, a short description of our objectives, a list of conferences attended, and copies of two reprints that give the essential technical content of our recent progress.
