SEG geophysics reprint series; no.28


The disk contains 85 articles reprinted from Geophysics and other journals and a few bound anthologies since a previous SEG reprint volume was assembled in 1990. The articles cover methods to solve wave equations numerically, accuracy and efficiency, boundary conditions, and modeling studies. Among specific topics are anisotropic wave propagation through finite-difference grids, a spectral element method for simulating acoustic waves in heterogeneous media, the dispersion analysis of spectral element methods for elastic wave propagation, a perfectly matched layer absorbing boundary condition for the second-order seismic wave equation, and using three-dimensional finite-difference modeling to design wide-azimuth surveys for improved subsalt imaging. The text provides abstracts and summaries ranging from a brief paragraph to almost a full page; it is not indexed.
