Main Article Content
The Kramers-Kronig relations for magnitude and phase of a linear causal filter are used to derive an exact general expression for the viscoelastic modulus M, corresponding to power laws for the quality factor, Q ≈ ωγ. The exponent γ varies from -1 to + 1, such that the spectrum of rheologies extends from a Kelvin-Voigt to a Maxwell body. High- and low-frequency approximations for M(ω) are derived, and in the special cases γ = ±1, ±1/2, ±1/3, ±1/4,... closed-form solutions are given which apply for arbitrary frequencies. With M(ω) at hand, both high-frequency phenomena such as velocity dispersion and low-frequency phenomena such as creep and stress relaxation can be investigated. Results for phase-velocity dispersion are given as well as short- and long-time-scale approximations of the creep and relaxation functions. Simple dissipation operators are derived which can be convolved with theoretical seismograms in order to correct these for the influence of absorption. Some results on relaxation spectra for the case 0 ≤ γ ≤ 1 are summarized in an appendix. Taken together, the results of this paper suggest that media with 0 < γ < 1 should be considered as generalized Maxwell bodies and media with -1 < γ < 0 as generalized Kelvin-Voigt bodies. Application of the Kramers-Kronig relations to the viscoelastic modulus is better than the use of those relations in conjunction with the wavenumber of a plane wave, which is the procedure that has been employed so far.

c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges and earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
Authors retain copyright and grant the Journal of Geophysics right of first publication, with the work three years after publication simultaneously licensed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 License that allows others to share the work (with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal), except for commercial purposes and for creating derivatives.
Authors can enter into separate, additional, but non-commercial contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository, but not publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal.

This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
