How much is the rate of seismic wave energy with distance?
Read widely. Take good notes.
Seimic Waves and Earth's Interior
At farther distances the amplitude of the seismic waves decreases as the energy released by the earthquake spreads throughout a larger volume of Earth. ...
Virtual Earthquake - An Introduction
Earthquakes occur because of a sudden release of stored energy. ... Strong seismic waves can cause great local damage and they can travel large distances. ... A seismic wave is simply a means of transferring energy from one spot to another ...
Seismic energy is provided by a source ('shot') located on the surface. ... Beyond a certain distance from the shot point, known as the cross-over distance, .... The continuous surface-wave method utilises a specific type of seismic wave, known ...
Measuring the Size of an Earthquake
Oct 27, 2009 – The only limiting factor is how long the seismic waves take to travel from the epicenter to the ... His basic idea was quite simple: by knowing the distance from a ... effects of an earthquake: seismic moment and radiated energy. ...
