History of Seismic Anisotropy

Published:
January 01, 2001

Abstract

The beginning of research in seismic anisotropy can be fixed precisely. When Maurycy Pius Rudzki assumed his duties as the first “Professor of Geophysics” at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow in early 1896, he stated that his research would be directed at seismology, and primarily at the propagation of seismic waves in anisotropic media. During the next 20 years he published regularly on the subject. Five major papers on different aspects of seismic anisotropy deserve to be studied even today. A year before his untimely death in 1916 he spelled out plans for future work. Several of his suggestions are now under discussion.
