**Seismic Wave Propagation in Stratified Media**

by Brian Kennett

**Publisher**: ANU Press 2009**ISBN-13**: 9781921536731**Number of pages**: 298

**Description**:

The book presents a systematic treatment of the interaction of seismic waves with Earth structure. The theoretical development is physically based and is closely tied to the nature of the seismograms observed across a wide range of distance scales -- from a few kilometres as in shallow reflection work for geophysical prospecting, to many thousands of kilometres for major earthquakes. A unified framework is presented for all classes of seismic phenomena, for both body waves and surface waves.
