Abstract (in english)
   Using travel times of seismic body waves generated by quarry blasts, (Horálek et al., 1987) proposed a homogenous half-space as a model for the regon of the West-Bohemian earthquake swarms. In the present paper, the same experimental data are analyzed in a greater detail. It is shown that the assumption of a homogenous half-space is not fully compatible with the observed data. Simple vertically inhomogenous models are proposed as better models of the medium. Consequenges for the accuracy of the earthquake location are discussed
