Finite Difference Modeling

Madagascar may be used to perform finite difference modeling of the wavefield and receiver data. The tools to perform these tasks are found in the fdmod package.

Note, these processes are somewhat computationally intensive. I performed the majority of these models on a machine with a 3 GHz processor and 1.5 MB of RAM and most of the models took on the order of 3 hours to perform.
