With the help of the ray perturbation theory for heterogeneous anisotropic media with interface, all the first-order linear relation between data space components and model space components required by the 2D qP-wave anisotropic stereo-tomography in triangulated media is established. Thus a novel 2D qP-wave anisotropic stereo-tomography method in triangulated model is achieved. The correctness of the presented algorithm and the applicability of the presented work-flow is demonstrated with two synthetic data examples.
