Abstract

The matrix formulation for coupling an atmosphere-ocean system to the solid earth will be presented, This theory allows one to calculate the excitation of air and sea waves from subsurface sources and the excitation of Rayleigh waves from atmospheric and oceanic sources, As an example, theoretical Rayleigh waves are synthesized for two multilayered earth models, an oceanic and a continental structure. The sources are atmospheric explosions at various altitudes. A comparison is made of the fundamental and first higher mode as a function of source height and earth model below the source.
