Forward Modelling


  • Developing the forward modeling ingredients to the inverse problem.
  • Defining optimal strategies for geophysical model description with complex geometries (e.g., GOCAD).
  • Computational grid generation for efficient wavefield calculations.
  • Adapting novel numerical approaches to the seismic wave propagation problem.
  • Defining optimal solutions (best practices) for specific problems (e.g., in terms of numerical approach, problem scale, computational grid type).
  • Development of appropriate rheologies for structural and source inverse problems (e.g., anisotropy, poroelasticity, nonlinear strains).
