Technical Paper: Modeling and Reverse Time Migration of Orthorhombic Pseudo-Acoustic P-Waves

Society: SEG
Paper Number: 667
Presentation Date: 2011


We derive coupled partial differential equations that accurately describe the propagation of pseudo-acoustic Pwaves in orthorhombic media but do not require explicit knowledge of shear velocities. These allow extension to orthorhombic media of efficient methods commonly used for modeling and for reverse time migration of P-waves in transversely isotropic media.
