The interrelation between Rayleigh waves and the HVSR can be shown on the basis of comparison between the HVSR and an ellipticity curve.
4, the hodographs of this magnetic field are close to a circle, so that the coefficients of the ellipticity of the soil are equal to unity, and hence this MF is strongly polarized.
The protein stability against heat denaturation in the absence and the presence of 6-shogaol was also examined using CD spectroscopy by recording the ellipticity value at 222 nm ([CD.

The ellipticity of the Earth's orbit varies with a major period of some 400,000 years.
When NASA and the British Royal Astronomical Society wanted to better calculate the 3-D ellipticity of 2-D images of galaxies (a step necessary to detect dark matter), they were constrained by budgetary considerations.
At this point, the analysis (filtering and inversion) of the Rayleighwave ellipticity gain importance, because Sexton et al.
In order to clearly demonstrate the optical activity of the polarization rotator, polarization azimuth rotation angle [theta] and ellipticity [eta] are calculated by the following formulas [37]
