Earth, Study of waveforms

In addition to the measurements of travel times, the determination of velocity distributions by body waves has been greatly enhanced since the late 1960s by the quantitative study of waveforms—the actual ground displacements as a function of time at each seismometer. The detailed character of these displacements, which might typically amount to a few to tens of micrometres
