motion are typically displayed in terms of seismic hazard maps. These maps
display contours of strong-motion parameter values having a specified probability
of exceedance over a given period of time. Figure 10 presents a seismic hazard ...

In the earth seismic velocities increase with depth, so that the free- surface effect
is coupled with a waveguide. Ray- leigh waves are correspondingly more
complex and rich in information in the real earth. C. Reflection and Transmission
