Hello tdick,


Of the four publications this was the "pick of the litter." It was
written for the IASPEI/Unesco Working Group on the Manual of
Seismogram Interpretation (I looked in appropriate places in the
publication and IASPEI was never defined). The purpose of the report
is to present a comprehensive and tutorial manual for deciphering
available seismograms.." The report is aimed at students in
seismology, amateurs as well as more experienced persons. It has
virtually no mathematics, is easy to read, has attractive
illustrations and many examples of seismograms with phases identified.
The introductory text consists of Earthquakes Why and Where They
Occur, Structure of the Earth's Interior, Seismic Waves, Travel Times,
and Seismographs and Seismological Observatories. The remainder of the
report consists of interpretation of 55 plates showing various types
events with phases identified. If I were to pick one of the four, this
would be the one. The only problem with this one is the cost--$142.

I have this book and it is one of the better investment I have made in
this hobby.
