Seismic Source

The description of the seismic source follows an approach proposed by Boore (1983). Boore’s method starts with the generation of a gaussian white noise. A window is applied to the noise which has the form

Seismic source spectra in terms of displacement density[4] can be described in terms of a low pass filter, i. e., with a flat part at low frequencies, an intermediate part where the spectrum starts to decrease, and the high frequency …

The understanding of the earthquake source experienced a significant progress when it was recognized that their occurrence is tightly linked to tectonic activity (Süss, 1873, 1875). Indeed, the most prominent seismoactive zones are found along the midatlantic ridges, the …

The simplest description of the seismic source is the concept of a point source (see Fig. 1). Even though in contrast with common physical and geological concepts the point source is still used for certain purposes, such as earthquake geographics …
