A synthetic seismogram is the result of forward modelling the seismic response of an input earth model, which is defined in terms of 1D, 2D or 3D variations in physical properties. In hydrocarbon exploration this is used to provide a 'tie' between changes in rock properties in a borehole and seismic reflection data at the same location. It can also be used either to test possible.

Summary. Po/So synthetic seismograms were computed for a variety of oceanic structures in order to model data from an mb= earthquake, recorded during the O.

The computation of theoretical seismograms for models in which the elastic parameters and density vary only with depth (in a plane, cylindrical or spherical geometry) reduces to the solution of an ordinary differential equation plus the evaluation of inverse transformations.

The theoretical basis for the Radon transform pair for one Cartesian coordinate has appeared in the seismological literature. For a point source in plane or spherical geometry, or a line source in cylindrical geometry only the Radon transform for the direct problem (computation of synthetic seismograms) has been published. John B. Sinton and L. Neil Frazer, A method for the computation of finite frequency body wave synthetic seismograms in laterally varying media, Geophysical Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society, 71, 1, (), (). The interpretation of refraction profiles that traverse laterally varying velocity structures has been hindered by lack of a practical algorithm for computing synthetic seismograms . The technique we present here is equivalent to computing three synthetic seismograms in multilayered models, contrasted with N+ 1 seismograms for a typical brute-force approach, which reduces the work to 3/(N+ 1) or about a 90 per cent saving for 30 layers. The lateral-homogeneity requirement will yield path-averaged structures which may form.
