Abstract

This dissertation consists of two unrelated subjects. Although both deal with the construction of synthetic seismograms, the first (Chapter I) is the detailed study of a complicated earthquake source, whereas the second (Chapter II) deals with the structure of the earth's interior as seen from the antipode of a seismic wave source. The two can be classified as problems involving forward inversion of seismological data. There is, however, a significant common ground in the spirit of the approach in the sense that seismic wave interference phenomena, present in both, are used as allies in reducing the inherent non-uniqueness of the inversion process.
