      Seismic data from a km long refraction profile on Rockall Bank have been re-interpreted to determine a detailed velocity-depth structure. The analysis was carried out using synthetic seismograms to match the amplitude and waveforms of the experimental records. The Vancouver Island Seismic Project was conducted in to study the structure of the subducting oceanic Juan de Fuca plate and the overriding continental America plate. The .

It is shown how the computation time and memory requirements scale with the dimension of the parameter space and size of the ensemble. We use ray theory to compute the fundamental P and SH synthetic seismograms for a given source-receiver ge-ometry; the synthetics for an arbitrary fault orientation are produced by taking linear combinations.

Get this from a library. Computation of synthetic seismograms for marine refraction studies. [C E Keen] -- A method for calculating synthetic seismograms is presented which can be used for comparing real seismic refraction data obtained with ocean bottom seismometers with that computed for an assumed.

The reflectivity method for the computation of synthetic seismograms, as devised by Fuchs, is extended to include the elastic transmission losses and time shifts due to a stack of layers on top of the reflecting medium.

Numerical details of this method are described, and a comparison with the ray-theoretical method, as devised by Müller, is by: The reflectivity method for the computation of synthetic seismograms, as devised by Fuchs, is extended to include the elastic transmission losses and time shifts due to.

A synthetic seismogram is the result of forward modelling the seismic response of an input earth model, which is defined in terms of 1D, 2D or 3D variations in physical properties.

In hydrocarbon exploration this is used to provide a 'tie' between changes in rock properties in a borehole and seismic reflection data at the same location. It can also be used either to test possible.

Request PDF | Least-square fitting of marine seismic refraction data | An iterative procedure is presented for fitting waveform data from a marine seismic refraction. Summary. The computation of theoretical seismograms for models in which the elastic parameters and density vary only with depth (in a plane, cylindrical or spherical geometry) reduces to the solution of an ordinary differential equation plus the evaluation of inverse transformations.

The theoretical basis for the Radon transform pair for one Cartesian coordinate has appeared in the seismological literature. For a point source in plane or spherical geometry, or a line source in cylindrical geometry only the Radon transform for the direct problem (computation of synthetic seismograms) has been published.

The interpretation of refraction profiles that traverse laterally varying velocity structures has been hindered by lack of a practical algorithm for computing synthetic seismograms. The technique we present here is equivalent to computing three synthetic seismograms in multilayered models, contrasted with N+ 1 seismograms for a typical brute-force approach, which reduces the work to 3/(N+ 1) or about a 90 per cent saving for 30 layers.

The lateral-homogeneity requirement will yield path-averaged structures which may form.

Calculation times are shortened by a factor of 20 to 30 compared with a general purpose computer with a capacity of several million floating point operations per second (MFLOP).

The rapid calculation of synthetic seismograms for complex models, high frequency sources and all offset ranges is a provision for modeling not only particular phases. Synthetic seismograms match amplitudes and travel times for all components only if a transversely isotropic model is used.

The data require a ~m-thick layer with ~16% shear wave anisotropy, overlying a m-thick isotropic region. This model agrees with drill core data showing 10m of silty clay overlying of sand. Accurate synthetic seismograms at teleseismic distances can be calculated by using a modified reflectivity approach with a slowness integral adapted to the epicentral distance to the receiver.

The resulting synthetic seismograms have minor dif- ferences in detail, (see Choy et al.,and Burdick and Orcutt, ); however, for the pur- pose of this study, the amplitudes of the refraction onsets derived by these three methods are suffi- ciently similar to enable any method to be used.
