Amplitude effects

The synthetic model I used to test the AVA effects of geophysical regularization is a simple subsurface with four flat layers (Figure 1). The velocity within each layer is constant and I assume a constant density throughout the model. I generated synthetic finite difference data from this velocity model. The expected AVA at each of the three interfaces can be calculated from the velocities of the adjacent layers.
