* Love waves are just a subset of S waves. However, they are surface waves, so their amplitude varies with depth. | * Love waves are just a subset of S waves. However, they are surface waves, so their amplitude varies with depth. | ||

* When an S or P wave interacts with a surface, boundary conditions require that it reflects as a *coherent* combination of S *and* P wave. These combined SP waves are Rayleigh waves, and the fact that S and P are coherent violates the assumption in Eq. 5 in Vuk's note, where S and P are assumed to be uncorrelated. Further, the fraction of power that gets converted from S into P and vice versa is O(1). The good news is that there's a very predictable phase relationship between S and P in Rayleigh waves. | * When an S or P wave interacts with a surface, boundary conditions require that it reflects as a *coherent* combination of S *and* P wave.

* Inhomogeneities. Any features characterized by a size of lambda/4 can probably be safely ignored. At 1 Hz, Victor thinks this corresponds to a length scale of ~700m, and the rock should appear very uniform at that length scale. However, at 10 Hz, Victor thinks that the length scale will be ~20m (note v depends on f in rock), and we might see significant inhomogeneity at this scale. | * Inhomogeneities.

* Investigate 2D version of radiometer. If we were only interested in surface waves (intrinsically a 2D problem), then we could model the change in surface waves as a function of depth with a simple formula. The angular power spectrum for surface waves is the same at all depths up to an overall factor which decays exponentially with depth. However, we're interested in 3D. | * Investigate 2D version of radiometer.
