2D multi-parameter viscoelastic shallow-seismic full waveform inversion: reconstruction tests and first field-data application

Gao, Lingli; Pan, Yudi; Bohlen, Thomas

2D full-waveform inversion (FWI) of shallow-seismic wavefields has recently become a novel way to reconstruct S-wave velocity models of the shallow subsurface with high vertical and lateral resolution. In most applications, seismic wave attenuation is ignored or considered as a passive modelling parameter only. In this study, we explore the feasibility and performance of multi-parameter viscoelastic 2D FWI in which seismic velocities and attenuation of P- and S-waves, respectively, and mass density are inverted simultaneously. Synthetic reconstruction experiments reveal that multiple crosstalks between all viscoelastic material parameters may occur. The reconstruction of S-wave velocity is always robust and of high quality. The parameters P-wave velocity and density exhibit weaker sensitivity and can be reconstructed more reliably by multi-parameter viscoelastic FWI. Anomalies in S-wave attenuation can be recovered but with limited resolution.
In a field data application, a small-scale refilled trench is nicely delineated as a low P- and S-wave velocity anomaly. The reconstruction of P-wave velocity is improved by the simultaneous inversion of attenuation. ... mehr
