An investigation has been made of the multipath propagation of Rayleigh waves by using data obtained from the large aperture seismic array (LASA). The use of the LASA in conjunction with a high-resolution analysis technique provides a greater angular resolution and accuracy than was previously possible for the analysis of the multipath propagation. Measurements have been made of this phenomenon for the Rayleigh waves of 26 events distributed at various azimuths and distances from LASA. On the bas of these measurements reasonably good conjectures are made concerning the actual propagation paths for groups in the 20- to 40-sec period range. It is shown that in almost all cases these propagation paths can be associated with refractions and reflections at the continental margins.
