In this study, author presents some results about the 3C waveform fitting between the observed and predicted surface wave to test the upper mantle model along the ray path from the source of the earthquake at Halmahera island, Indonesia, in 1997 to the receiver station of PMG. The synthetic seismograms were calculated using the method equivalent to the mode summation method for the anisotropic media. The results manifest that the upper mantle along this special ray path could be different from the PREM model. This was never reported by others.
