Reflectivity modeling for stratified anelastic media

Peng Cheng and Gary F. Margrave

ABSTRACT

The reflectivity method is widely used for the computation of synthetic seismogram for layered media due to its capacity of modeling all kinds of wave propagation and attenuation for a given model with sufficient accuracy and relatively low computation cost. This paper gives a brief introduction of the reflectivity method, and then demonstrates that reflectivity method can give accurate and realistic modeling results for stratified anelastic media.
