Seismic Modeling of the Soil Column

Published:
January 01, 2015

Abstract

In engineering seismology, for site investigations required for civil engineering structures, we most commonly use Rayleigh-wave and rarely Love-wave dispersion curves to estimate an S-wave velocity-depth model for the soil column. We use first-arrival times associated with mostly refracted waves to estimate a P-wave velocity-depth model and shallow reflections to derive a seismic image for the near-surface. By using the velocity-depth model and the seismic image, we delineate the geometry of the layers and faults within the soil column, and the geometry of the soil-bedrock interface.
