Abstract : The use of regionally recorded Rayleigh waves to estimate isotropic moment and psi-infinity for the purpose of yield estimation is investigated. These seismological parameters and their variability are consistent with other investigations. Psi-infinity shows less variability than isotropic moment as a yield estimator. Preliminary results on wave propagation in the Korean peninsula are also presented.
