Determining Seismic Profiles from a Set of Observations

  • V. P. Valyus

Abstract

This paper considers the inverse problem of seismology: to find a set of profiles for which the calculated characteristics of seismic wave propagation (travel-time curves, amplitude-distance curves, dispersion curves) agree with observations.
