Notes
A modification of the Aki-Lamer method was used to model the amplitude data. Results confirmed that a shallow attenuating anomaly exists and were used to estimate the quantitative parameters defining it. All model parameters were physically meaningful except for one. The value for Q inside the anomaly, required to explain the data, was unrealistically low. This was probably due to the inability to include additional structural complexity within the low-Q zone that would account for a portion of the observed amplitude loss by the re-direction of energy away from the inner caldera sites.
