Abstract

© 2018 SEG. We develop embedded boundary and discontinuous mesh methods to handle arbirarily shaped topography and accurately simulate acoustic seismic wave propagation in Laplace-Fourier domain. The purpose of the embedded boundary method is to enhance accurate wave simulation near the surface and the discontinuous mesh method is used to achieve considerable savings in both computation time and memory savings relative to fixed mesh schemes.
