Shear Wave Splitting
- Fig. 1 Horizontal-component seismograms of local earthquakes
showing shear wave splitting. Columns 1 and 3 show original data, columns 2 and 4 after
rotation and time shift as given in figure. Bar is 1s long. (PostScript version).
- Fig. 2 Seismogram os a local earthquake recorded on station
HEI in the western volcanic zone of southwest Iceland. Two horizontal comonents (rotated
to N40E and N130E) and the vertical component are shown. Note that clear splitting of the
S wave. (PostScript version).
- Fig. 1 Apparent angle of incidence of the P wave of local
earthquakes vs. earthquake depth. (PostScript version).
- Fig. 1 P wave and S wave mplitudes vs. range for shallow (< 5 km)
local earthquakes, compared to a model with an upper later with Qs=50 overlaying a halfspace
with Qs=300. (PostScript version).
- Fig. 2 Frequency dependence of attenuation seems to be small.
- Fig. 3.Results of 1D inversion of the variation of quality
factor with depth. (Top) Compressional wave quality factor; (Bottom) Inversion results,
quality factor vs. depth for a 1-D model with 4 km thick laters. The path averaged quality
factor data (circles) and predictions (squares) are also shown, plotted at the maximum
depth of penetration of the ray. (PostScript).
