Epsilon and Delta in Anisotropic Velocity Model Building

The objective of seismic imaging is to get a sharp and accurate image of the elastic reflectivity in the subsurface, especially in complex geological settings. By ‘accurate’, we mean that reflectors should be at the right depth, but also correct lateral position.
The accuracy of a Pre-Stack Depth Migration image goes together with our ability to estimate the velocity at which waves propagate in the subsurface. To build such a Velocity Model remains a challenge because the earth is not only heterogeneous (waves propagate at different velocities at different locations), but also anisotropic (propagation velocity is a function of propagation direction).
The presentation discusses the physical meaning of Thomsen’s parameters epsilon and delta included in the Model to describe anisotropy. It illustrates a popular method to estimate them in a Pre-Stack Depth Migration project to conclude that borehole calibration is a necessary step to achieve the best accuracy possible.
