In much the same way that the X-ray furnishes the physician with data on the internal state of the human body, so the study of seismograms provides the geophysicist with one of the important sources of information concerning the interior of the earth. There, however, the comparison ceases, for seismograms not only give evidence of current happenings within the earth's interior and crust, but likewise offer opportunities to investigate mathematically many theoretical problems relating to their interpretation.
