Seismic Wave Propagation in Stratified Media
by Brian Kennett
Publisher: ANU Press 2009
Number of pages: 298
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.

It is commonly accepted that the variations of Earth's orbit and obliquity control the timing of Pleistocene glacial-interglacial cycles. Evidence comes from analysis of palaeoclimate records. However, we do not know how tight this control is.

This book presents the full suite of reflection profiles penetrating the whole crust carried in Australia. The set of reflection data provides an insight into the variations in crustal architecture in the varied geological domains.
