For high-frequency wave propagation, scattering and attenuation, the role of small-scale heterogeneities and surface roughness are all important. The existence of small-scale heterogeneities in the crust and the associated seismic wave scattering have been known among seismologists (e.g., Aki and Richards, ; Wu and Aki, Seismic Scale Effects: Dispersion, Attenuation, and Anisotropy by Multiple Scattering of Waves Yinbin Liu and Douglas R. Schmitt Institute for Geophysical Research, Department of Physics, University of Alberta Summary The multiple scattering of seismic waves in heterogeneous media causes velocity dispersion and waveform distortion. A propagator.

The global short-period waveﬁeld modelled with a Monte Carlo seismic phonon method sus scattering attenuation. the technique allows the imaging of high-frequency scattered waves that are incoherent between seismograms. We used a similar tech-. For the high‐frequency range the scattered power for common‐mode scattering has a second‐power frequency dependence, which is attributed to velocity perturbations. The scattered power of converted waves reaches a maximum, for the case of an exponential correlation function, .

Scattering attenuation Scattering attenuation is not energy loss to heat or random motions on the scale of atoms, but rather elastic energy that is scattered and redistributed into directions away from the receiver or into waves arriving in later time windows at the receiver (see Seismic, scattering).

In engineering, attenuation is usually measured in units of decibels per unit length of medium (dB/cm, dB/km, etc.) and is represented by the attenuation coefficient of the medium in question.
