The purpose of the first part of this dissertation was to develop a migration algorithm for converted waves, and a tomographic method for estimating an interval shear wave velocity model. The developed algorithm is based on the Kirchhoff formalism. The elastic Kirchhoff integral and its implementation were discussed and summarised in Chapter 2. The derived migration integral was generalised for all types of multicomponent data. For practical reasons, multicomponent data are decomposed into their corresponding components (z,x, and y components), and the migration is performed separately for each component. Normally it is assumed that the decomposed wave components are free from other wave types. The migration result of each component shows particular characteristics of the subsurface. For example, PS data give the shear wave characteristics of the subsurface...
