Seismic Ray Theory presents the most comprehensive treatment of the seismic ray method available. This method plays an important role in seismology, seismic exploration, and in the interpretation of seismic measurements. Many new concepts which extend the possibilities and increase the efficiency of the method are included.5/5(4). Seismic Ray Theory will prove to be an invaluable advanced textbook and reference volume in all academic institutions in which seismology is taught or researched.

Seismic Ray Theory presents a comprehensive treatment of the seismic ray method available. It will prove to be an invaluable advanced textbook and reference volume in all academic institutions in which seismology is taught or researched, and an invaluable resource in the petroleum industry and geological surveys.   The ray theory belongs to the methods most frequently used in seismology and seismic exploration for forward and inverse modeling of high-frequency seismic body waves. In smoothly varying media with smooth interfaces, it can provide useful approximate solutions of the elastodynamic equation of satisfactory accuracy. Seismic Ray Theory presents a comprehensive treatment of the seismic ray method. This method plays an important role in seismology, seismic exploration, and in the interpretation of seismic measurements. Many concepts which extend the possibilities and increase the efficiency of the seismic ray method are included. The seismic ray method plays an important role in seismology, seismic exploration, and in the interpretation of seismic measurements. Seismic Ray Theory presents the .

Seismic ray tracing aims to find a ray trajectory satisfying Fermat's principle of stationary travel time on the basis of ray theory (e.g., Lee and Stewart, ; Cerveny, ). To describe the. Seismology and the Earth’s Deep Interior Body Waves and Ray Theory Body Waves and Ray TheoryBody Waves and Ray Theory • Ray theory: basic principles Wavefronts, Huygens principle, Fermat’s principle, Snell’s Law Seismic phases in the Earth, nomenclature, travel-time curves for teleseismic phases. The full text of the book is also available —here—, via the Seismic Waves in Complex 3-D Structures (SW3D) consortium..
