Numerical and Physical Modeling of Diffraction

Published:
January 01, 2016

Abstract

In Chapter 3, the forward problem is presented in a collection of papers which focus on numerical and physical modeling. Whereas the preceding chapter contains a number of numerical modeling studies, the topic of this chapter is the zero-offset and prestack seismic diffraction responses of simple structural and stratigraphic features. The convolutional model of seismic diffraction is another key theme. Whereas geophysicists undoubtedly have good knowledge of the convolutional model of seismic reflection, the convolutional model for seismic diffraction, and the common basis of both convolutional models in the Kirchhoff integral, is probably less well known.

Summary

A method for computing certain types of diffracted rays and corresponding travel-time curves in laterally inhomogeneous media with slightly curved interfaces is suggested. Numerical examples are presented.
