An algorithm for direct and inverse three-dimensional problems in vertical seismic profiling

  • G. Yu. Mel’nikov


The article discusses the propagation of plane waves in a three-dimensional homogeneous medium with anisotropy. The zeroth approximation solution (the ray solution) is considered. Algorithms are proposed for solving the direct dynamic VSP problem and for projecting the wave field on the model medium by multiple solution of the direct problem. Simulation results and calculations with real data are reported.
