Study of normal mode solutions for seismo-acoustic propagation scenarios, A: a generalized range-independent case, earthquake modeling using seismic moment tensors, and an improved moment tensor inversion method
This work presents improvements to the study of tsunamigenic offshore earthquakes and complex earthquakes, i.e., earthquakes that are better represented as multiple events, through the use of underwater acoustic normal mode solutions and updated inversion techniques. When considering offshore earthquakes, normal mode solutions, i.e., analytic solutions that can be expressed as an infinite sum of residues, are used to model the acoustic field generated by an event. The environment under consideration, an ocean environment where water is overlying the seafloor, is approximated as a fluid layer ...
