Seismic Wave Propagation Course, 2014

I am giving a course on Seismic Wave Propagation in H1 2014. The lectures will be held in the Newton Room at Schlumberger Gould Research weekly at 3pm (UK time) on Tuesdays starting on January 28. The first lecture was postponed due to ice in Houston, so the first lecture was February 4. The exceptions are that there will be no lectures on February 18 and 25, and March 4 (I am on vacation), an on April 29 (reviews at SGR).

A pdf file of the syllabus is available here.

The lectures will be made available as pdf files. Note that each module is in two formats: the first is in 'handout' format where overlays are combined in one slide; the second is the full 'lecture' format where each overlay is a separate slide. The former file is much smaller, contains fewer slides and is more suitable for printing; the second is larger, with many slides and is included only because the overlays are occasionally corrupted in the handbook format. Note there will not be a 1-to-1 correspondence between Modules and Lectures.

Module 1: Review of travel-time functions and ray theory: handout and full lecture (version dated 5 February 2014).

Module 2: Review of continuum mechanics: handout and full lecture (version dated 16 April 2014).

Module 3: Basic elastic wave results: handout and full lecture (version dated 14 May 2014).

Module 4: Source theory: handout and full lecture (version dated 16 April 2014).

Module 5: Asymptotic ray theory: handout and full lecture (version dated 23 April 2014).

Module 6: Reflection-transmission coefficients: handout and full lecture (version dated 12 May 2014).

Module 7: Layer-matrix methods: handout and full lecture (version dated 16 May 2014).

Module 8: Slowness methods: handout and full lecture (version dated 4 June 2014).
