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.

Inverse Theory is concerned with the problem of making inferences about physical systems from data. This course is an introduction to some of the balkanized family of techniques and philosophies that reside under the umbrella of inverse theory.

We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.

The papers presented in this book are a distillation of the current state of the art in observatory seismology. Ranging through subjects of past, present, and future seismological interest, they provide a benchmark reference for years to come.
