What is WKBJ approximation in seismology?

this is a method to computing synthetic seismograms: The WKBJ program was developed by Chris Chapman in the 1970's and named to honour Gregor Wentzel, Henrik A. Kramers, Marcel Louis Brillouin and Sir Harold Jeffreys. See Chapman, C.H., A new method for computing synthetic seismograms, Geophys. J. R. astr. Soc. 54: 481-518, 1978. Since Sir Harold was the closest of these four to a seismologist, the routine is also sometimes called JWKB. for more informations : http://www.geop.ubc.ca/people/gorman/wkbj.html#WKBJ

What is seismology?

SeismologySeismology is a study of the motions of the Earth's crust. Earthquakes are the most well known of these motions, but there are places where the crust is in motion all the time. Plate tectonics involves seismology, because the motion of plates relative to each other is what causes many earthquakes. A seismograph is a device for measuring such motions, which consists of a weight suspended from a point, and a rotating drum. The weight has a marking pen, or stylus, attached to it, which draws a line an the drum. As the drum turns, it raises or lowers, so that the trace does not overlap. When an earthquake hits, the suspended weight does not move very much, because of its inertia, so the trace on the drum, which is moving up and down from the waves of the earthquake, shows peaks and valleys. Interpreting these traces, to determine the amplitude of the earthquake, is what the science of seismology is specifically. Seismographs are so sensitive that some can measure earthquakes on the other side of the globe, explosions, and meteorite impacts.

Seismographs are one of the primary tools of telling what is happening in the ground below us, and in trying to predict when an earthquake will occur. They are also used in monitoring volcanoes, which create motions detected by the seismographs such as harmonic tremors, which is when magma is moving under the ground.

What are the various phases of sleep?

During sleep, we usually pass through five phases of sleep. These stages progress in a cycle from stage 1 to rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep, then the cycle starts over again with stage 1. We spend almost 50 percent of our total sleep time in stage 2 sleep, about 20 percent in REM sleep, and the remaining 30 percent in the other stages. Infants, by contrast, spend about half of their sleep time in REM sleep. During stage 1, which is light sleep, we drift in and out of sleep and can be awakened easily. Our eyes move very slowly and muscle activity slows. People awakened from stage 1 sleep often remember fragmented visual images. Many also experience sudden muscle contractions called hypnic myoclonia, often preceded by a sensation of starting to fall. These sudden movements are similar to the "jump" we make when startled. When we enter stage 2 sleep, our eye movements stop and our brain waves (fluctuations of electrical activity that can be measured by electrodes) become slower, with occasional bursts of rapid waves called sleep spindles. In stage 3, extremely slow brain waves called delta waves begin to appear, interspersed with smaller, faster waves. By stage 4, the brain produces delta waves almost exclusively. It is very difficult to wake someone during stages 3 and 4, which together are called deep sleep. There is no eye movement or muscle activity. People awakened during deep sleep do not adjust immediately and often feel groggy and disoriented for several minutes after they wake up. Some children experience bedwetting, night terrors, or sleepwalking during deep sleep. When we switch into REM sleep, our breathing becomes more rapid, irregular, and shallow, our eyes jerk rapidly in various directions, and our limb muscles become temporarily paralyzed. Our heart rate increases, our blood pressure rises, and males develop penile erections. When people awaken during REM sleep, they often describe bizarre and illogical tales - dreams. The first REM sleep period usually occurs about 70 to 90 minutes after we fall asleep. A complete sleep cycle takes 90 to 110 minutes on average. The first sleep cycles each night contain relatively short REM periods and long periods of deep sleep. As the night progresses, REM sleep periods increase in length while deep sleep decreases. By morning, people spend nearly all their sleep time in stages 1, 2, and REM. People awakened after sleeping more than a few minutes are usually unable to recall the last few minutes before they fell asleep. This sleep-related form of amnesia is the reason people often forget telephone calls or conversations they've had in the middle of the night. It also explains why we often do not remember our alarms ringing in the morning if we go right back to sleep after turning them off1.

What are scarps?

Scarps are vertical displacements of the ground surface along a fault, which may be represented by small rises or by steep cliffs. A fault scarp with relatively level land on each side is also called an escarpment.

What is Andrija Mohorovicic famous for?

Andrija_Mohorovičić, a Croatian seismologist (1857-1936), first theorized the boundary layer between the Earth's crust and its mantle, now known as the Mohorovicic Discontinuity (aka Moho). The layer was identified by changes in the propagation of waves generated by seismic events.

What role does elasticity and the storage of potential energy play in the development of an earthquake?

They play an important role, since in most casses they determine the degree of intensity or extent of destruction of the earthquake, because they tend to affects the rates of movement of the seismic waves i.e. the seismic velocity within rocks and Earth materials.

Would seismology work on the Moon?

Yes, of course! Seismology is the study of the different types of waves that are generated inside the Earth, or on the surface. Similarly, waves are generated on other planets, including moons, as well. In fact, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) currently uses Geophysicists to determine the structure of Moon and other aspects, through its Lunar Planetary Institute.

What is serial number for Quake Wars?

Where Is Your Serial Number

The serial number would either be on the back of the CD case or within the documentation that came with your software when you purchased it. You will know it is the serial number because it is a mix of numbers and/or letters separated by dashes, usually 20 characters long.

Install Without Serial Number

You can't install this software without the serial number. Follow the on screen instructions during installation. One of the instructions will come up asking you to enter the serial number - put it into the white boxes - and the installation will continue. You can't use the software without installing it.

What To Do If You've Lost Yours

Contact costumer services at Need for Speed's company by mail, email, or phone. They will probably need proof of purchase such as original receipt, bar code on package, or some other form of identification. They will instruct you on what is needed and will then give you a new serial number if necessary.

More Info

Downloading proprietary software is illegal (except for trials). This is called piracy. Using serial numbers that you did not purchase is also illegal, even if you purchased the software and lost your serial number (see above for obtaining a new one in this case). It is also illegal to use key generators (keygens) which provide serial numbers as well as cracks to bypass expired time trials or entering a serial number and no-CD cracks which enable you to use the software without the original purchased CD for the software.

WikiAnswers will not provide serial numbers or links to serial numbers. We will also not provide information or links on where to obtain pirated software, serial numbers, keygens, or cracks. If you are caught doing any of these, you may be blocked from using WikiAnswers as well as reported to the proper officials and/or the company who created the software.

Note: This is a catch-all question. Neither it nor its alternatives should be deleted or removed. It should also remain protected so that illegal information cannot be posted.

What is a seismology timeline or what is the development of seismology timeline?

•2900 BC - First phase of building at Stonehenge. Circular ditch and 4 holes excavated. The heel stone was erected and the 50 Aubrey holes dug.

•2100 BC - Second wave of construction. Double circle of bluestones constructed.

•2000 BC - Third wave of construction. Sarsen Circle and horseshoe of trilithons built.

•1663 - John Aubrey does the first known systematic inspection of the site. He attributes the construction to the Druids who used the site as a temple.

•1740 - Dr. William Stuckly, also a proponent of the Druid theory, investigated and measured the site, and was the first to suggest that it was astronomically aligned.

What applications does seismology have besides measuring the magnitude and location of earthquakes?

Reflection and refraction seismology can be used in geophysical exploration to locate layers of varying density which can be used for example to locate underground hydrocarbons in the oil and gas industry.

Seismology has also provided us with information on the internal structure and state of matter of the interior of the Earth.
