Abstract : By using a cubic spline interpolation method a representation of seismological travel time tables is achieved which is highly continuous. Divergence coefficients for seismic phases computed from this representation are free from non-essential discontinuities and are thus more meaningful than those obtained using other methods of interpolation. Results are compared with those obtained by others. For six phases results are given in graphs and tables. (Author)
