Finite difference modelling in structurally complex anisotropic medium

Pavan Kumar Elapavuluri, John C. Bancroft

Modelling seismic data is a very important aspect in exploration seismology. In this paper, we derive a wave equation for a tilted TI medium and apply it to a thrust sheet model. We also compare the data generated to the physical modelling data. It is also shown that the traveltimes of both physical modelling data and the numerical data match.
