The seismic signatures of isolated body phases from many deep-focus earthquakes were analyzed in the time domain. Most shocks were found to be multiple events when examined in detail. The time history derived from P waves for single events predict synthetic S-wave shapes that match the observations, indicating compatibility with shear dislocation theory. Several other features of source functions in the time domain have been brought to light.
