Here, I examine the influence of Pand S-wave The angular dependence of reflection coefficients may be significantly distorted in the presence of elastic radiation patterns on AVO in the most common anisoanisotropy. However, the influence of anisotropy on amplitude variation with offset (AVO) analysis is not tropic model limited to reflection coefficients. AVO signatures (e.g., -transversely isotropic media. A concise AVO gradient) in anisotropic media are also distorted by the redistribution of… CONTINUE READING
