FIG. A-14. Anisotropy. (a) Application of Huygens’ principle to anisotropic velocity illustrates why phase and ray velocities may differ in both direction and magnitude. (b) The application of Fermat’s principle to anisotropic velocity illustrates why the angle of incidence for a reflection for a coincident source and receiver may not make a right angle with the reflector. (c) SH-wavefronts in transversely isotropic media are elliptical but P- and SV-wavefronts are not.
