Part I Multi-mode group velocity dispersion of both Rayleigh and Love waves was measured for a number of paths in the Western United States by means of a technique developed for separating the modes. Results for each region studied are interpreted in terms of a crustal structure which produces simultaneous agreement with all the modes observed, as well as available body wave data. Certain diagnostic features of group velocity dispersion curves were noted and used to advantage in this study… CONTINUE READING
