  1. 1. Shear-Wave Splitting Observed in Local Earthquake Data on the Reykjanes Peninsula, SW Iceland

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Geofysik

    Author : Darina Buhcheva; [2014]
    Keywords : shear-wave splitting; local earthquakes; Iceland;

    Abstract : Shear-wave splitting is a phenomenon observed in almost all in situ rocks. Due to propagation through stress-aligned and fluid-saturated microcracks and fractures the initial shear wave splits into two almost orthogonal waves which propagate with different velocities along similar ray paths.
