Abstract

The method of reconstructing a cross-sectional image of the earth between two boreholes can be used in areas from tunnel detection to mineral exploration. Of great importance to this underground reconstruction process is the ability to adequately model the forward (simulation) problem. In this paper we consider the simulation of continuous wave data using geometrical optics with first order diffractions from impedance surface discontinuities. -from Authors
