Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: Various methods of generating synthetic seismograms are reviewed and examples of recent applications of the methods are cited. Body waves, surface waves, and normal modes are considered. The analytical methods reviewed include geometric ray theory, generalized ray theory (Cagniard-de Hoop method), asymptotic ray theory, reflectivity method, full wave theory, and hybrid methods combining ray theory and mode theory. Two numerical methods, those of finite differences and finite elements, and a hybrid method combining finite differences with asymptotic ray theory are described. Limitations on the application or validity of the various methods are stated.
