Abstract : Until recently the method of solution of inverse problems for continuous media were limited to the particular case where the velocity varies with depth and a horizontal gradient is absent. In connection with the development of seismic surveying for ore, a number of investigations of recent years have been devoted to the solution of inverse problems for more complex models of continuous media. In the case of tilted plane-parallel layered medium (monocline), the inverse problem can be solved by a very simple method which utilizes the construction in the lower half-plane of a time field, which is then converted into a velocity field.
