Second. Edition. Scattering due to randomly distributed small-scale
heterogeneities in the earth significantly changes seismic waveforms of local
earthquakes especially for short periods. Scattering excites long lasting coda
waves after the direct arrival and broadens the apparent duration of oscillation
with increasing travel distance much longer than the source duration time.
Models of propagation through deterministic structures such as those with
horizontally uniform velocity layers ...
