Applications of the ray method to the construction of theoretical seismograms for laterally varying layered structures are discussed. Numerical examples are presented. It is shown that the refracted waves are very sensitive to the curvature of interfaces. Certain modifications and improvements of ray theoretical seismograms to increase their accuracy are suggested.
Ray theoretical seismograms, laterally inhomogeneous structures, modifications of ray method.
