Unformatted text preview: face waves? D) A second set of seismometers were located only 5 degrees away from the earthquake, still at
the same longitude. P, SV, SH, and surface waves were recorded. For this case, the body
waves did not dive deep and then arrive vertically; instead, they body waves arrived at an
angle of 45 degrees relative to vertical. The seismometers are oriented the same way as the
previous set. Which seismometers detect which waves? 4) (40 points) Use Excel or Matlab for this problem. A P-wave is generated at 20 km depth (the
top of the mantle) and propagates downward. It is incident upon an interface 10 km further down
at an angle of 30 degrees. The wave continues...
