Elastic imaging conditions based on Helmholtz decomposition

Zaiming Jiang and John C. Bancroft and Laurence R. Lines

ABSTRACT

This report demonstrates Helmholtz decomposition performed on particle velocity wave-fields with a staggered-grid FD scheme. In addition, Helmholtz decomposition is used in elastic reverse-time migration, and PP, PS, SP, and SS images are obtained.
