Implementation of numerical modelling in anisotropic media by pseudo-spectral method

Kangan Fang and R. James Brown

ABSTRACT

Numerical simulation or forward modelling of wave propagation is an efficient method to produce test data and examine the mechanism of wave propagation. In this paper, implementation of the numerical modelling in anisotropic media by the pseudo-spectral method is examined, examples of forward modelling in azimuthally anisotropic media are presented. It proves that the pseudo-spectral method is feasible and successful in modelling wave propagation in anisotropic media.
