A stratified elastic sphere is excited by an harmonic dipolar source of arbitrary orientation and depth. The total field is expanded in series of vector spherical harmonics and then condensed into a convenient form of a displacement dyadic. The Haskell-Gilbert matrix method is employed to obtain the radial factor of the displacements for a multilayered sphere. The dependence of the field on the azimuth angle and the fault elements is obtained for the case of a double-couple at depth. Expressions are also developed for the radiation pattern of surface waves over a spherical stratified earth.
