P-wave reflection coefficients for transversely isotropic models with vertical and horizontal axis of symmetry

  title={P-wave reflection coefficients for transversely isotropic models with vertical and horizontal axis of symmetry},
  author={Andreas R{\"u}ger},
The study of P-wave reflection coefficients in anisotropic media is important for amplitude variation with offset (AVO) analysis. While numerical evaluation of the reflection coefficient is straightforward, numerical solutions do not provide analytic insight into the influence of anisotropy on the AVO signature. To overcome this difficulty, I present an improved approximation for P-wave reflection coefficients at a horizontal boundary in transversely isotropic media with vertical axis of… CONTINUE READING
