# pylops.avo.avo.zoeppritz_scattering¶

pylops.avo.avo.zoeppritz_scattering(vp1, vs1, rho1, vp0, vs0, rho0, theta1)[source]

Zoeppritz solution.

Calculates the angle dependent p-wave reflectivity of an interface between two media for a set of incident angles.

Parameters
vp1float

P-wave velocity of the upper medium

vs1float

S-wave velocity of the upper medium

rho1float

Density of the upper medium

vp0float

P-wave velocity of the lower medium

vs0float

S-wave velocity of the lower medium

rho0float

Density of the lower medium

theta1np.ndarray or float

Incident angles in degrees

Returns
zoepnp.ndarray

$$4 \times 4$$ matrix representing the scattering matrix for the incident angle theta1
