The article by Savage (2004) presents analytical solutions of Rayleigh waves for topographic surfaces and discusses amplifications on the rig top and valley bottom. Analytical solutions on a topographic surface may contribute to studies of teleseismic waves, microseism measurements, and strong ground motion amplifications. We, however, find a serious problem in the analyticity of fk(wk) in that report.

The article attempts to derive analytical solutions based on projection from a topographic surface coordinate (u, v) to a flat surface coordinate (x, y) with z = f(w), where z...
