# What is DENISE?DENISE (subwavelength DEtail resolving Nonlinear Iterative SEismic inversion) is a 2D elastic full waveform inversion code. The inversion problem is solved by a conjugate gradient method and the gradients are computed in the time domain with the adjoint method.
The forward modeling is done by a time domain finite difference scheme. The manual is included in the download archive or can be downloaded [here](https://git.scc.kit.edu/GPIAG-Software/DENISE/wikis/home)
