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.

A selection of papers published in the Soviet journal Applied Geophysics are being presented to the Western scientists. The intention is to illustrate some of the achievements of the Russian applied geophysicists by translating their publications.

This book is designed to provide a summary of the character of the Australian continent through the information available at the continental scale, as a contribution to the understanding of Australia's lithospheric architecture and its evolution.

The focus of the book is the imaging of reflection seismic data from controlled sources. The author emphasizes the fundamental physical and mathematical ideas of imaging rather than the details of particular applications.

Introductory flash-based, online book on plate tectonics - the movement of litosphere plates. Students using this book can see continents collide and watch what happens at the mid-ocean ridge. Fantastic full-color illustrations.
