Abstract

Of course, most of us, most of the time, are not concerned with shear waves. There is a good reason for this: they are more complicated, hence we have to work harder to get useful information out of them. Also, they attenuate more rapidly than P-waves do, so they penetrate the earth less deeply, and, below a thousand feet or so, they provide poorer resolution.
