Simultaneously solving for velocity, epsilon, and delta in anisotropic tomography is very challenge. Surface seismic data only is not sufficient for this joint problem. In this work, a model covariance function was built using rock physics to constrain the joint anisotropic tomography. An example from Gulf of Mexico was presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method.
