seismic waves. One seismometer is oriented vertically (call it #1), one is oriented N-S (call it
#2), and one E-W (call it #3). This is a long distance from the earthquake to the seismometer, so
assume the body waves dove vertically, bottomed out, and came back up vertically. A) Consider direct arrivals (P, SV, SH). When these body waves bottomed out, which direction
was the particle motion for each wave? Why do the waves bottom out and return to the
surface? B) Assume the 3 body waves arrived at the surface traveling vertically. Which seismometers
detected which waves? C) Which seismometers detect which sur...
