Presenting a comprehensive introduction to the propagation of high-frequency body-waves in elastodynamics, this volume develops the theory of seismic wave propagation in acoustic, elastic and anisotropic media to allow seismic waves to be modelled in complex, realistic three-dimensional Earth models. The book is a text for graduate courses in theoretical seismology, and a reference for all academic and industrial seismologists using numerical modelling methods. Exercises and suggestions for further reading are included in each chapter.Read more
- Applicable to all areas of seismology: regional and crustal seismology, exploration and borehole seismics, sonics and ultrasonics
- The author has a wealth of academic and industry experience and is well known for his contributions in this field
- There are exercises at the end of each chapter for which solutions will be provided on the internet
Reviews & endorsements
"This fine volume represents a welcome addition to the growing number of recent books dealing with various aspects of seismic wave propagation theory..a veritable treasure trove of seismic high-frequency forward modeling techniques. It will be a definitive reference work for a long time to come." The Leading EdgeSee more reviews
"This is a significant accomplishment for what can easily be a difficult subject, and speaks volumes for the author's intimate expertise with the material." EOS-Transactions, AGU
