Scattering Attenuation of 2D Elastic Waves: Theory and Numerical Modeling Using a Wavelet-Based Method

Hong, Tae-Kyung; Kennett, Brian


The passage of seismic waves through highly heterogeneous media leads to significant scattering of seismic energy and an apparent attenuation of seismic signals emerging from the heterogenous zone. The size of this scattering attenuation depends on the correlation properties of the medium, the rates of P- and S-wave velocities, and frequency content of the incident waves. An estimate of the effect can be obtained using single scattering theory (first-order Born approximation) for path...[Show more]
