The Effects of Source on the Generation of Short Period Surface Waves

Abstract

Short-period surface waves can usually be observed on strong motion records. Theoretical seismograms provide a useful tool for the prediction and interpretation of differences in the surface wave excitation of various earthquakes. The influence of source parameters (source depth, source type and orientation) on the excitation of Rayleigh waves for the elastic half-space and a single layered half-space model is discussed in detail.
