Mapping of moveout approximations in TI media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Moveout approximations play very important role in seismic modeling, inversion and scanning for parameters in complex media. We propose to map the moveout approximations from VTI to TTI medium by introducing the effective tilt angle. As a result, we obtain highly accurate TTI moveout equations synonymous with their VTI counterparts.
