The July 2024 edition of Geophysics carries two articles by Qi Hao and Ilya Tsvankin. “Wavefield decomposition for viscoelastic anisotropic media” offers an efficient approach to wavefield decomposition taking velocity and attenuation anisotropy into account. “P-wave propagation in attenuative elliptical VTI media” makes the elliptically anisotropic TI model attenuative and discusses the corresponding P-wave dispersion relation and wave equation.
