  • Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

    Seismic waves – generated both by natural earthquakes and by man-made sources – have produced an enormous amount of information about the Earth's interior. In classical seismology, the Earth is modeled as a sequence of uniform horizontal layers (or sperical shells) having different elastic properties and one determines these properties from travel ...

  • Surface Waves in Geomechanics: Direct and Inverse Modelling for Soils and Rocks

    The subject of this book is forward and inverse modelling of surface waves. Although the emphasis is placed in Rayleigh wave propagation in geomaterials, the theory is developed for rather general constitutive models spanning from one-component linear elasticity and viscoelasticity to multi-component systems and nonlinear continua. An attempt is ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...
