The estimation of P- and S-wave seismic velocities and densities of earth layers from the data sets recorded at the surface has long been one of the main research interests in reflection seismology. Although structural interpretations of the subsurface with sophisticated data processing and interpretation techniques have been facilitated, there remains a lot more to be done in obtaining quantitative information about the seismic parameters to lead to lithological interpretation that will open the ways to direct hydrocarbon exploration, groundwater exploration, and understanding the deep earth crust.
