One-way Riemannian wavefield extrapolation (RWE) on computational
meshes conforming to the direction of turning-wave
propagation is presented as an alternative forward modeling
procedure for waveform inversion. Forward modeling tests
demonstrate that the RWE approach may be a sufficiently accurate
approximation for calculating the wavefield phases important
for early-arrival waveform inversion. Initial results indicate
that RWE waveforms are well matched at wide offsets to
finite-difference data, and can be used in a waveform inversion
scheme to invert synthetic data for 1D velocity perturbations.
