A fast, convenient program for computation of surface-wave dispersion curves in multilayered media


Surface wave analysis has become an important tool for exploration of crustal and mantle structure. The need exists for fast, convenient digital computer programs for computing theoretical dispersion curves and displacements for Rayleigh waves and Love waves. One such program for an IBM 7090 computer is described and made available to the scientific community. Among the conveniences are mail-order service, high speed, and choice of many options.
