Seismic imaging with traveltime and waveform inversion: Naga Thrust and Fold Belt, India
I demonstrate the utility of traveltime and waveform inversion in depth imaging of seismic data with the help of two 2-D multichannel seismic lines, Reg-07 and PO-03, shot perpendicular to the trend of the Naga Thrust and ...
Localized waveform inversion applied to the D" region in teleseismic imaging
A localized waveform inversion technique based on hybrid modeling was developed to investigate the shear wave velocity structure of the lowermost mantle. Utilizing ray theory and the Kirchhoff integral, the source wavefield ...
Stability of one-dimensional waves in layered media
This thesis presents an interpretation of a result on the stability of waves in layered media with respect to Webster's horn equation and travel-time velocity as a parameter The stability property of waves is related to ...
The nonlinear differential semblance algorithm for plane waves in layered media
This thesis proposes an alternative approach to the output least-squares (OLS) seismic inversion for layered-media. The latter cannot guarantee a reliable solution for either synthetic or field data, because of the existence ...
Strength envelopes for deforming oceanic lithosphere with some implications for the history of lithospheric deformation of the equatorial Indian Ocean
Strength envelopes for oceanic lithosphere inferred from laboratory experiments indicate that the oceanic lithosphere in the central Indian basin is several times stronger (≈27 TN m -1 ) than the force available to drive ...
Three-dimensional seismic structure of the Leeward Antilles arc from seismic refraction and refraction and reflection tomography
We have developed new velocity and Moho interface models for the Dutch Antilles region of the Leeward Antilles arc from independent and simultaneous 3-D inversion of first arrival and PmP traveltimes. The first arrival and ...
