Abstract : The problem of plane SH wave incident at the base of a dipping layer has been considered. A solution by multiple reflection for waves incident at any angle perpendicular to strike has been obtained for the amplitude, phase and phase velocity. Numerical values are calculated on the surface. It is found that the phase velocities vary rapidly with both period of the wave and depth to the interface, particularly for propagation directions close to an angle which corresponds to vertical incidence in the horizontally layered case.
