I've picked these papers out as ones that random ``browsers'' might find
enjoyable and/or useful. Let me know what you think.
A recent paper of mine from GEOPHYSICS,
``Do traveltimes in pulse-transmission experiments yield anisotropic group or
(If you think you've been measuring group velocities but aren't 100% sure,
perhaps you'd better read this.)
A tutorial paper from the
1992 Fifth International Workshop on Seismic Anisotropy,
``Dix revisited: a formalism for rays in layered media''.
(Confused about the Schoenberg-Muir calculus? Despairing about the math
involved in solving for anisotropic moveout equations?
Then this may be the paper for you!)
A paper from ``The Leading Edge'' about the uses of e-mail,
``Electronic mail for Geophysicists''.
(But then, if you're reading this on-line you probably know all about
An old paper of mine from GEOPHYSICS,
``Modeling elastic fields across irregular boundaries''.
(This paper shows how to interpolate tilted elastic-constant boundaries
onto a regular grid.)
My first (very short) paper in GEOPHYSICS,
``Imaging reflections in elliptically anisotropic media''.
(Once you realize elliptical anisotropy is just linear-transformed isotropy,
you have the key to understanding it completely.)
An old tutorial paper of mine from The Leading Edge,
``Eisner's reciprocity paradox and its resolution''.
If you've ever been confused about reciprocity, you might find this paper
helpful. (Or if you want to make a geophysicist squirm, tell them the paradox
but not the solution. It worked on me.)
