How do the following affect seismic scattering ?

1) topography
2) faulting
3) fluid and melt

Any scientific sources are appreciated, thanks

What have you found in your reading so far?

I know that seismic scattering occurs as a result of the wavefield interaction with a heterogeneity that is of a similar scale length to the incident wavelength, but i do not know how each of these particular entities has an effect, if at all ?

OK Im not going to do them all for you, since Im sure you really do know how to use google

put your questions into google one at a time ... I did the first one for you

how does topography affect seismic scattering ?

and as an example, got ....

Topography would be a geometric effect, in addition to differences in interfaces between different media.

What is a fault?

What is the significance of fluid or molten rock - as compared to solid rock? Think about the speed of sound and elastic properties?
