<br/>In seismic exploration, the delineation of large bodies with hard exterior contrasts but nearly constant interior properties is a challenge. Examples include salt diapirs, salt slabs, anhydrite or basalt layers. Salt geometries are of particular interest because they often have hydrocarbon reservoirs on their sides or underneath. This...

Least-squares inversion of seismic reflection waveforms can reconstruct remarkably detailed models of the Earth’s subsurface. However, the cycle-skipping associated with the highfrequency waveforms are responsible for spurious local minima in its objective function. Therefore, it is often difficult for descent methods to converge to the true...

Three model parameters as a function of position describe wave propagation in an isotropic elastic medium. Ideally, imaging of data for a point scatterer that consists of a perturbation in one of the elastic parameters should only provide a reconstruction of that perturbation, without cross-talk into the other parameters. This is not the case...

Waveform inversion is the method of choice for determining a highly heterogeneous subsurface structure. However, conventional waveform inversion requires that the wavefield for each source is computed separately. This makes it very expensive for realistic 3D seismic surveys. Source-encoding waveform inversion, in which the sources are modeled...
