Velocities to elastic moduli

If these velocity pairs can be established for all three wavetypes of a transverse isotropic model, then the five elastic moduli of the TI model, C11, C33, C13, C44 and C66, can be estimated to an unknown density factor. If the SH event could not be identified, then we would still have four of the five, missing only C66.
