AnisWave2D: Seismic Wave Modeling Software for Enhanced Hydrocarbon Reservoir Imaging CR-1878, 2089

Geometry of a single-well survey. Fine grid spacing is used around the low velocity borehole.
Benefits: 
Computationally efficient - Reduces memory use and increases speed via variable grid spacing - Fully parallelized and portable - Avoids unnecessary computation by restricting the wavefield update to gridpoints inside an expanding surface defined by the maximum seismic velocity - Anisotropic: offers isotropic, vertical axis of symmetry (VTI), orthorhombic, and Tilted Transverse Isotropy (TTI) modeling - Fractures can be modeled discretely or as equivalent anisotropic media - Software is compatible with Berkeley Lab’s GEM graphical model-building tool
