MALISCHEWSKY AUNING, P. The ellipticity of Rayleigh waves at infinite depth. Geofís. Intl [online]. 2008, vol.47, n.1, pp. 77-79. ISSN 0016-7169.
I present an analytical formula and an approximation for the ellipticity of Rayleigh waves in a homogeneous half-space at infinite depth in terms of Poisson's ratio. The result is compared with the corresponding formulas for surface ellipticity.
Keywords : Rayleigh waves; ellipticity.
