A direct Born inversion algorithm is presented which separates the effects of stratified medium velocity and density gradients, thus facilitating the simultaneous reconstruction of the velocity and density profiles from scattered field data.A significant but not unexpected conclusion is that velocity and density variations cannot be separated and resolved from data acquired by a single source-receiver configuration. Measurements at a minimum of two offset angles are required.
