A number of quarry blasts were recorded on magnetic tape using low frequency seismometers. Spectral analyses were performed on these recordings using variable pass-band filters. Empirical equations involving geometrical spreading plus an appropriate absorption factor were found to fit observed attenuation. Examples are presented showing the effect of various parameters on the spectra of seismic waves generated by these blasts.
