Abstract:

An experimental technique for characterizing the seismic source from chemical explosions in different geological material is presented. The specific example of an explosion in alluvium is given. The importance of a complete seismic site characterization prior to the experiment is emphasized. This characterization must include determination of both compressional and shear properties at the test site. Keywords Seismology Explosion source Moment tensors Inversion Seismic modeling.
