Synthetic seismograms for P and S waves using the Goupillaud model

Donald T. Easley and Darren S. Foltinek


Mendel's state space model using equal time layers has been expanded to include both P and S body waves. The method involves running two simultaneous equal time models, one for each wave type, and injecting the convened wave energy between the models. The speed and flexibility advantages of equal-time or Goupillaud models appears to have survived this adaptation. Evanescent (all interfacial) waves are absent in this method.
