A simple method is suggested to calculate synthetic long-period seismograms by normal mode summation. Effects of the lateral heterogeneity are incorporated by the first-order asymptotics which are valid up to the order of I-1 (l: angular order). Synthetic seismograms of a laterally heterogeneous earth model can be calculated by those of a spherically symmetric earth model with varying frequency, epicentral distance, amplitude, and azimuth.
