Abstract

Summary

The P-wave eikonal equation for orthorhombic media is the sixth-order PDE with complex and time-consuming numerical solution. We propose to approximate the solution of this equation by applying multi-parametric perturbation method. We also investigate the sensitivity of traveltime surface in orthorhombic media with respect to three anelliptic parameters. A simple moveout equation valid for orthorhombic media is derived.
