This graduate textbook develops the theory of seismic wave propagation in realistic Earth models, presents specialized theories of fracture and rupture propagation as models of an earthquake, and supplements these theoretical subjects with practical descriptions of how seismographs work and how data are analyzed and inverted. Originally published in 1990 by W.H. Freeman, the second edition reflects new methods for detecting and recording seismic motions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
