  • Abstract

    This paper presents general approaches and numerical models of solving seismic dynamic parameters and determining mediumís quality factor. The methods presented here can be extensively applied to investigate characteristics of existing seismic waves so as to obtain correct prediction of forthcoming earthquakes and judgment of seismic tendency in certain regions. Errors in estimating different seismic parameters are also discussed, which may be caused by different reasons.
