Abstract

“Where are you going and what do you wish?” These questions are woven throughout all of our experiences, from earliest days, and shape our future. As some might remember, this question is a citation from the chronicle of Winken, Blinken and Nod. Together, we discuss where we are going and what we wish to accomplish.

It is appropriate to state a reasonable working model of the earth, and then to review briefly the state of the art in regards to anisotropy, and finally to comment upon probable future developments. The focus herein is confined to the field of hydrocarbon exploration and development, and the applications of anisotropy in this field. The scale of interest, unless otherwise specified, is the seismic scale: frequencies between 5 to 100 hz, distances on the order of 10s of meters to kms.
