The second part of my talk will briefly review a new method for making sponge boundary conditions effective for acoustic wave equation modeling. Further, the sponge is thought to be a numerical method but a careful example shows it to be a relative of the angle dependent methods.
Finally, I will discuss the research efforts for seismic modeling and migration as directed toward reservoir characterization. Determing the effective seismic parameters in reservoir volumes with sufficient low frequency content for full wave form inversion is essential, and with as high as frequency as possible for correlation with well logs. The integrated petro-physical volume for reservoir management.
