Modeling and inversion of cross-dipole full waveforms for azimuthal anisotropy ///

In this article, we describe the results of using a new algorithm for the inversion of two realistic data sets that were computer generated using a boundary element technique. This technique allows simulation of micro-seismograms for 12 receivers as a function of depth by including the change of rock physical properties at each source position. The resulting synthetic data sets were used as observed data for the new inversion algorithm. The objectives of this application are the testing and verification of the algorithm with synthetic data to develop a protocol for inverting real cross-dipole sonic logs.
