# Introduction

The objective of reflection seismic techniques is
the recovery of information of the subsurface
with seismic soundings.
In order to achieve this goal, one needs to solve an inverse problem
by inferring the values of the model parameters of the subsurface
from given data collected at the surface.
There have been many theoretical and practical approaches
to the seismic inverse problem.
The primary motivation for the work
developed in this thesis is the need to
improve interval velocity estimation and reflectivity imaging
in a practical inversion approach.
