Abstract : A method of analysis was devised whereby the body waves in a stratified medium subject to a plane irrotational wave at normal incidence to the strata may be studied. This method was used in conjunction with the matrix method of surface wave analysis to theoretically predict the deep well noise improvement properties of typical geological structures likely to be encountered in the selection of observation sites for a worldwide detection system. The improvement of the signal-to-noise amplitude ratio with depth has been displayed graphically for representative tectonic formations. (Author)
