In Chapter 3, the fundamental concepts of PS-wave seismology are discussed. This includes propagation velocities in anisotropic media, the elastodynamics involved in the generation of converted waves, reflection and transmission coefficients from elastic impedance contrasts, and the up- and downgoing wavefields recorded in VSPs. Various modeling techniques are discussed to highlight 3C seismic interpretation and responses of the full wavefield at the surface as well as VSP responses of downgoing and upgoing wavefields in the earth.
