Amplitudes of Fundamental Seismic Waves in the Mantle
The interpretation of seismological observations at all distances, except the very nearest (out to 10°), is based on the basic compendium of seismic-wave travel times composed by Jeffreys and Bullen in 1940  and later refined and supplemented by a number of authors .
