Sea-bottom displacements associated with seismic events are confined largely to strips of large but finite aspect ratio. We analyze waves that are initiated on such a strip and that propagate across a region of finite depth. We invoke the classical shallow-water-wave theory to obtain rather comprehensive descriptions of the non-dispersive aspects of the waves. The directivity of the energy radiation and the domain of pulse persistence are discussed.
