Dispersion Analysis of Split Flexural Waves

  title={Dispersion Analysis of Split Flexural Waves},
  author={Bertram Nolte and Rama Rao and Xiaojun Huang},
In this paper we first present a technique for measuring dispersion curves from array data, that is both simple and efficient. We demonstrate its performance on both synthetic and field data. We then use the technique to compute dispersion curves for split flexural waves from cross-dipole data from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. In this data set we consistently observe crossover of the fast and slow flexural waves, an indication of stressinduced anisotropy. Next, we demonstrate the effect… CONTINUE READING
