DISC book errata and key references

updated 1 April 2013... new items marked with •

***** DISC Book Errata *****************

p xi ... SeismicUn*x is open source software not public domain software

p 37... Figure 1(c) legend is mis-labled for phase and group velocity.  Light gray is group velocity, dark gray is phase velocity.

p 38... Chap 3 Eq 21 see correction below in red


p 38... Chap 3 Eq 22 see correction below in red


•p 42... left side of Eq 23 should be zero not R

p 55... Chap 4 Eq 9 is an  invertible set of relationships between stiffness and Thomsen parameters, but the quadratic terms in the definition of delta require a choice of sign.  For details see Tsvankin's 2012 book Seismic Signatures and Analysis of Reflection Data in Anisotropic Media (p 19).

•p 73... para 2 reference should be Nagaoka (1906) as correctly given in the reference list

p 75... Table 2 wave equation (WE) entries for Time--dependent moduli should read "Linear"

p 80... Figure 2 vertical axis label should read: "1000/Q or Log(velocity)"

p 83... Figure 3 vertical axis label should read: "1000/Q or Log(velocity)"

p 121... Figure 12c velocity profile should decrease with depth as shown below:
