Finite-difference seismograms for a selected shot and five receiver configurations computed in the elastic SEG/EAGE Salt Model during the Next-Generation Seismic Modeling and Imaging project are compared with ray-theory travel times calculated using the SW3D software. Two-point rays and travel times of direct, refracted and reflected P-waves and converted S-waves in the smoothed elastic SEG/EAGE Salt Model are computed.
Ray tracing, seismic waves, travel times.
