README for 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. The gradients are computed in the time domain
with the adjoint method. The forward modeling is also done in the time domain
with a finite difference code on a standard staggered grid.
System requirements:
For a typical example of an inversion of shallow seismic surface waves with
- a model size of 400 grid points in lateral and 75 grid points in vertical
direction,
- 14000 time steps per forward modeling,
- viscoelastic forward modeling with three relaxation mechanisms and
- 8 shots
we need
- at least 4 CPUs
- 720 MB memory
- around 4.6 MB storage capacities per iteration (in total around 800 MB for 173
iteration steps in this example)
Installation instructions can be found in the file INSTALL.
A detailed documentation is provided in manual_DENISE.pdf.
To get started with this code try to run the toy example that is described in
chapter 9 in the documentation (manual_DENISE.pdf).
If you use this code for your own research please cite at least one article
written by the developers of the package, e.g.
