Seismic Waveform Modelling of High-Frequency Body Waves
The Earth is a complicated inhomogeneous, anelastic and anisotropic medium. Even though the fundamental equations of elasticity are well known and understood, modelling the propagation of seismic waves is non-trivial, and the interpretation or inverse problem is difficult. Many aspects of seismic wave propagation have their counterparts in other fields, and similar techniques can be used to model the propagation. Nevertheless, for realistic Earth structures, certain problems unique to seismology arise.
