In Chapter 7, PS-wave inversion applications are separated into two groups for fracture and stress properties, and for lithology and fluid discrimination. Principles of S-wave inversion for long wavelength birefringence properties of splitting orientation and magnitude are demonstrated with case studies. Inversion for short wavelength elastic properties of P- and S-wave impedance and density are illustrated for joint AVO/A analysis with P-waves. Also, VSP examples are included along with unconventional reservoir, and time-lapse monitoring applications.
