Abstract

Tables for spectral displacements of seismic surface waves from shear dislocations in flat multilayered earth models were prepared. Earth response functions for seven modes (R_(11), R_(21), R_(12), L_0, L_1, L_2, L_3) at six periods (300 sec, 250 sec, 200 sec, 150 sec, 100 sec, 50 sec) and three paths (continental, oceanic, shield) were calculated for the source-depth range of 10 to 600 km at intervals of 5 km until 200 km, and thereafter at intervals of 10 km. Ground motion is given in micron-seconds for the three fundamental shear dislocations, each of strength U_0dS = 10^3 (m × km^2) and a delta-function time-dependence. The tables provide the means for rapid evaluation of source parameters from spectral radiation patterns of amplitudes and initial phases.
