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.
