Fault With Lateral Disruption
Shown is the xz-plane of the model and
the y-component of seismic velocity.
The seismic properties of the model (and
of all subsequent models, otherwise mentioned) are
The FZ properties are 30% reduced with respect
to the background.
p-velocity: 5.00 km/s
s-velocity: 3.50 km/s
density: 2.35 g/cm^3
In the lower fault segment a FZ-wave emerges. Reaching the disruption
some fraction of the trapped energy is send out spherically in the surrounding
quarterspaces. This energy contributes significantly to the seismograms,
arriving between direct S-wave and FZ-wave.
The remaining FZ-energy crosses the disruption and builds a new FZ-wave
in the upper segment.
