Refraction travel-time tomography based on adjoint state techniques

Abstract : Standard refraction traveltime tomography based on ray tracing techniques has difficulties to handle large datasets that come from current seismic acquisition surveys. To overcome this problem we suggest a refraction tomography method based on adjoint state techniques to derive the gradient of the traveltime misfit function. We use the eikonal equation for the forward modelling, and iterate with a conjugate gradient method. Synthetic examples demonstrate the efficiency and the great potential of the method for 3D applications of refraction tomography.
