Abstract


In this paper we investigate Love waves scattering at the corner of a rigid quarter space in the presence of a liquid layer of depth  on the elastic solid. The model fits with Love wave scattering at coastal regions. A shallow ocean        ( ) of depth  on the elastic solid earth (  ) and the quarter space ( ) is composed of hard materials like rocks at coastal regions. We use the Wiener-Hopf technique and Fourier transformation in integrals whose evaluation along appropriate contours in the complex plane yields the equations of reflected, transmitted and scattered waves. At distant points, the scattered wave retains the behavior of a cylindrical wave but decays exponentially.
