Joint work with Michael Ritzwoller.

In recent years surface waves have found wide applications in various seismological studies of a very different scale. We present a brief description of our recent results in regional surface wave tomography of continents, in applying these results for nuclear tests monitoring purposes, and in studying shear-velocity structure of soft sediments below sea bottom.
