It is now understood that seismic anisotropy is a comparatively common phenomenon in sedimentary layers. The elastic properties of most sedimentary rocks have been shown to be anisotropic. (Anisotropy means that the physical property of the material is a function of the measuring direction). Seismologists are generally concerned with velocity variation with the direction of propagation.
