2D FWI for imaging anisotropic media (sept. 2008 - sept. 2011)

One PhD thesis will be opened in September 2008 on 2D FWI for imaging TTI visco-acoustic media. This PhD will be focused on applications to synthetic examples for an estimation of the sensitivity of FWI to anisotropic parameters and to real data sets.

 

Application to 2D visco-elastic FWI to real datasets (sept. 2008-sept. 2011)

The aim of this PhD will be to investigate the performances of 2D visco-elastic FWI for different applications. This PhD will be the continuation of previous PhD work. As mentioned above, the Valhall data set will provide one marine case study. We would like to investigate the applicability of FWI in complex onshore environments and assess the potential contribution of surface waves in addition to body waves.

 

Lithospheric application(sept. 2008-sept. 2011)

The aim of this PhD thesis is the development of 2D tomographic method for lithospheric imaging by full-waveform inversion of teleseismic data. The objective is to develop 2D lithospheric velocity models with an improved resolution level compared to that provided by receiver-function and traveltime tomography methods. Full-waveform inversion methods has been originally developed for controlled-source seismology and will be adapted to passive seismic data.

 

Near-surface imaging techniques (sept. 2008-sept. 2011)

The aim of this PhD thesis is the development of 2D high-resolution tomographic imaging for near-surface structures. Although the financial support will be outside the SEISCOPE consortium, this research is strongly linked with the objectives of this consortium.

 

Poro-elastic imaging techniques (sept. 2008-sept. 2011)

The aim of this PhD thesis is the development of 2D high-resolution tomographic imaging for poro-elastic media. Although the financial support will be outside the SEISCOPE consortium, this research is strongly linked with the objectives of this consortium.
