Happy New Year Everyone,

Jerry,   This might help:   If you have a globe, I have a 12" dia. globe,
you could compute the two different (P wave shadow zone at 103-143 degrees)
and the (S zone at 103-180 degrees,) into inches of the surface of your
globe.    For a 12" globe, one degree= .104 inches.   103 degrees= 10.712
inches.
Using the appropriate length of string, place one end on your home town and
using the other end of the string you could trace or otherwise mark its
length all around the globe.  This line would represent the beginning of the
However, I think I saw a wed site which may do this, using your Lat/Long,
and those of the earthquake.

OK, lets start out the new year with a simple question for the group
showing MY ignorance and lack of training!

I fully understand the theory and principle behind the Shadow Zones, but
determining what MY shadow zones would be is confusing to me.  Has anyone
built a windows software program to calculate what the shadow zones would be
given my Lat / Long coordinates?

I understand the 104-140 degree zone that used, but I cannot correlate
that into a spot or spots on the globe or map.  Can someone please point me
in the right direction to solving this, please.

(If needed, my coordinates are 36.09N  094.13W.)
