Inversion of Rayleigh Waves Using a Layered-earth Model Dispersion is the main characteristic of Rayleigh waves that makes them distinctive and a key component of the near-surface wavefield. Being dispersive means that their velocities change as a function of frequency. A second important characteristic of Rayleigh waves is that their velocities are affected primarily by S-wave velocities. A systematic research program using MASW as a tool for accurately determining near-surface S-wave velocities was launched in the early 1990s at the KGS.
