A subsurface moving dislocation in an elastic half space generates vertical displacements at the free surface. We compare this displacement for two different values of the dislocation viscous drag coefficient. The different resulting surface patterns suggest the free surface plays a decisive dynamical effect. We thus compare this displacement, using the dynamic Green function for an elastic half space, with the result of the calculation using the static Green function for an infinite space, as in the work of Zolotoyabko and Shilo [preceding paper, Phys. Rev. B 80, 136101 (2009), and Shilo and Zolotoyabko, Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 115506 (2003)] when the dislocation dynamics is the same. Considering the static Green function of an infinite space instead of the correct dynamic Green function of the half space leads to an underestimation of the resulting displacement at the free surface by a factor up to 50 for dislocation depths smaller than one Rayleigh wavelength ?R. We also discuss the constraints that recent ultrasound attenuation and resonant ultrasound spectroscopy experiments place on dislocation parameters, such as density and viscous drag coefficient. © 2009 The American Physical Society.
