Salvus Documentation and Usage Guide¶
Salvus is a suite of software for performing full waveform modelling and inversion provided by Mondaic. Salvus aims to fuse the flexibility of research codes with the performance of production-grade software. It employs the spectral element method and works in 2-D and 3-D on quadrilateral and hexahedral meshes. A particular focus of our efforts is directed at usability and the proper solution of the inverse problem.
Our peer-reviewed and open-access paper describes some of the underlying methods in detail.
