Source-velocity identification for a layered model of reflection seismology
The identification of the source signature is a major calibration problem in reflection seismology. Conventional approaches to this problem involve statistical methods, direct measurement of the source, or the location of ...
Multiparameter inversion and energy source estimation for a reflection seismic experiment
Reflection seismologists illuminate the subsurface by introducing energy into the ground. These propagating waves encounter heterogeneities in the subsurface material and are partly reflected back up to the surface where ...
On a transmission inverse problem
In crosswell seismic experiments, seismic sources are fired in one well, and the wave-fields generated are measured in another well. The goal of the crosswell seismology is to find physical parameters, especially the ...
Three-dimensional first arrival traveltimes and amplitudes via eikonal and transport finite difference solvers
First arrival traveltimes and associated amplitudes are essential components in Kirchhoff migration and modeling. Traditionally they have been determined by ray tracing. However ray tracing does not give traveltimes on a ...
A study of reactive transport phenomena in porous media
The numerical modeling of reactive transport in a porous medium has important applications in hydrology, the earth sciences and in numerous industrial processes. However, realistic simulations involving a large number of ...
Velocity analysis in the presence of uncertainty
Velocity analysis resolves relatively long scales of earth structure, on the order of 1 km. Migration produces images with length scales (wavelengths) on the order of 10's of m. In between these two scale regimes lies ...
