A possible solution to these problems and ambiguities can be represented by the joint acquisition and analysis of Love waves and/or the radial component of Rayleigh waves (Safani et al., 2005; Dal Moro and Ferigo, 2011; Xia et al., 2012; Dal Moro et al., 2015b, 2016, 2017a).
These pressure sources cannot explain the observed Love wave excitations or the observed overtones of spheroidal modes.
By using (9) and (10) with Love wave condition, the above equations reduced into

The Love wave devices were fabricated on ST-cut (42[degrees]45') quartz substrates (12 mm x 13 mm x 0.5 mm) with a propagation direction perpendicular to the crystallographic v-axis (90[degrees] rotated).
(iii) Special cases are considered as Rayleigh waves, Love wave, and Stoneley surface waves in anisotropic generalized thermoelastic medium, as well as in the isotropic case.
Sato studied the propagation of Love waves in a layer with sharp change in thickness while De Noyer considered the same in a layer over a half space with sinusoidal interface.
For these reasons, various authors have for instance considered Love waves as well (Winsborrow et al., 2003; O'Neill et al., 2006; Safani et al., 2005; Dal Moro, 2014).
This is well-known equation for Love waves in a homogeneous isotropic layer over a homogeneous isotropic half space.
Kolinsky and Brokesova (2007) estimated several 1-D models of WB uppermost crust [v.sub.s] using short-period Love wave group velocities from quarry blasts.
