Title:
Anisotropic wave-equation traveltime and waveform inversion
Authors:
Feng, Shihang; Schuster, Gerard T. ( 0000-0001-7532-1587 )
Abstract:
The wave-equation traveltime and waveform inversion (WTW) methodology is developed to invert for anisotropic parameters in a vertical transverse isotropic (VTI) meidum. The simultaneous inversion of anisotropic parameters v0, ε and δ is initially performed using the wave-equation traveltime inversion (WT) method. The WT tomograms are then used as starting background models for VTI full waveform inversion. Preliminary numerical tests on synthetic data demonstrate the feasibility of this method for multi-parameter inversion.
