The Propagation Of Seismic Wave
- Nov 13, 2018 -

The propagation of seismic wave (elastic wave) includes p-wave and s-wave. The direction of p-wave particle displacement is parallel to the direction of wave propagation, and the direction of particle displacement of s-wave is perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. Generally, the commonly used seismic exploration method is to collect the signals of the p-wave, and the acquisition of the s-wave signal is called seismic s-wave exploration. Shear waves have inherent advantages in judging lithology, fracture and oil and gas. This exploration method is in the stage of research and experiment in China.
