Results from theoretical models, laboratory experiments, and full-waveform sonic log data converge toward a common interpretational model for Vp/Vs ratios in sedimentary rocks. Moreover, we show that Vp/Vs ratios obtained from sonic logs may be significantly different than those obtained from seismic reflection velocity analysis due to dispersion.
