Homework #6: Do not turn this in since there is a test the next class week. I will post my solutions so that you can check your own work.
- There's not any real new reading since we spent two of the days this week simply going over yet again refraction seismograms.
- section 3.4 (very short) contains the three general equations I wrote on the board. Eq. (3.14) is for a two-layer case, Eq. (3.33) is for a 3-layer case, and Eq. (3.39) is for the general case of 'n' layers.
- The resistivity topics that I started on Friday will not be on this upcoming test.
That's all for homework #6.
- Analyze Figure 3.21 (a) on page 103 assuming that this shows a subsurface with horizontal (flat) boundaries. You should be able to get the three wave speeds, use those to distinguish perhaps the subsurface structure using Tables 2.1 and 2.2 in the text, and then get the depths to each of the boundaries between the layers.
