Item description for Elastic Waves in Random Media: Fundamentals of Seismic Stratigraphic Filtering (Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences) by Serge A. Shapiro & Peter Hubral...
This book treats various generalizations of the classical O'Doherty-Anstey formula in order to describe stratigraphic filtering effects. These are the effects that can be observed when elastic and electromagnetic waves propagate through multilayered structures. Our aim was to treat this topic in a comprehensive manner and present compact results in a didactically simple way, emphasizing the physics of the wave-propagation phenomena. We do not claim mathematical rigidity in all our derivations, however, we are pleased to have obtained quite simple descriptions of scattering, transmission and reflection of wavefields in acoustic, elastic, and poroelastic media which can be useful for various seismological and non-seismological applications.

Excellent book by renowned experts Mar 8, 2003
This book gives a detailed account of the significant recent developments in the area of seismic wave propagation in random media. In particular, it highlights authors' original contribution to the theory of seismic attenuation and dispersion due to scattering in finely layered media. The approach taken by the authors combines mathematical rigor with simple physical concepts. Thus the book will be useful for the general geophysical community.
