Frequency analysis of seismic magnetic tape records from a 500-ton high-explosive source shows a pronounced variation of amplitude with frequency for two different azimuths from the source. This amplitude variation is attributed, at least in part, to diffraction effects produced by the geologic structure in the vicinity of the source. The possibility of generating both SV and SH waves from P waves within this structure seems very probable.
