Guide to the understanding of seismograms in terms of physical propagation processes within the Earth. Focuses on the observation of earthquakes and man-made sources on all scales, for both body waves and surface waves. Includes a survey of the structure of the Earth and the nature of seismic wave propagation using examples of observed seismograms. Provides a full development of the theoretical background for seismic waves.
'This book will be very valuable to students and researchers in the fields of seismology and petroleum industry.' Zentralblatt MATH
