Large-offset P-wave traveltime in layered transversely isotropic media
Large-offset seismic data processing, imaging, and velocity estimation require an accurate traveltime approximation over a wide range of offsets. In layered transversely isotropic media with a vertical symmetry axis, the ...
A new acoustic assumption for orthorhombic media
In exploration seismology, the acquisition, processing and inversion of P-wave data is a routine. However, in orthorhombic anisotropic media, the governing equations that describe the P-wave propagation are coupled with ...
Rational approximation of P-wave kinematics — Part 1: Transversely isotropic media
In seismic data processing and several wave propagation modeling algorithms, the phase velocity, group velocity, and traveltime equations are essential. To have these equations in explicit form, or to reduce algebraic ...
Rational approximation of P-wave kinematics — Part 2: Orhorhombic media
Orthorhombic anisotropy is a modern standard for 3D seismic studies in complex geologic settings. Several seismic data processing methods and wave propagation modeling algorithms in orthorhombic media rely on phase-velocity, ...
