Abstract

Traveltime Calculation by Solution of the Eikonal Equation: This chapter presents the numerical solution of the eikonal equation by a finite-difference method, in which the output is the first-arrival travel-time field for a smoothly varying inhomogeneous velocity model. These traveltimes can be used for either traveltime tomography or reflection migration.
