Seismic signatures and analysis of reflection data in anisotropic media, 3d ed.

Tsvankin, Ilya.

Soc./Exploration Geophysicists


438 pages



Geophysical references series; no.19


Tsvankin (geophysics and wave phenomena, Colorado School of Mines) acquired rights to his reference and textbook from Elsevier, who published the 2001 and 2005 editions, and for the third edition, went with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, for whom he has been teaching courses using the book since 2002 and whose membership encompasses almost everyone who would read it. It covers elements of the basic theory of anisotropic wave propagation, the influence of anisotropy on point-source radiation and amplitude variation with offset (AVO) analysis, normal-movement velocity in layered anisotropic media, nonhyperbolic reflection moveout, reflection moveout of mode-converted waves, P-wave time-domain signatures in transversely isotopic media, velocity analysis and parameter estimation for vertical transverse isotopy (VTI) media, and P-wave imaging for VTI media.
