To characterize the changes in the wave amplitude owing to changes in the surrounding environment (water depth and stratification), we use an analogue of the shoaling coefficient for surface waves in a linear approximation (Talipova et al.
This mechanism requires a linear relationship between ocean wave height and the excited seismic wave amplitude.
Table 2 demonstrated the mean values and standard deviations of the electrocardiographic variables: duration of Pms wave, amplitude of Pmv, PR interval, QRS complex, Rmv wave amplitude, and QT interval.
To interpret the ABR, the examiner considers the wave amplitude, which indicates the number of neurons firing; latency of the wave, which indicates the speed of transmission; interpeak latency, which shows the time between peaks; and finally the interaural latency, which shows the difference in wave latency between the 2 ears.
The solutions for the wave equations can be expressed in terms of the arrival wave amplitude and departure wave amplitude as follows:

QRS wave amplitude in it is a measure of the ventricular contractility, as it occurs during the phase of ventricular depolarization.
The boundary element method [3] proposes the principle of wave amplitude attenuation of various frequencies far afield and makes a transformation into the time domain.
