dc.description.abstract Orientations of vertical fractures (i.e., transversely isotropic with axis of symmetry horizontal) can be detected using the Amplitude-Versus-Offset (AVO) response for the reflected p-waves. A MATLAB program that calculates the AVO response at a plane interface between any two transversely isotropic media is presented. The program agrees with the Zoeppritz equations when both media are isotropic.
