We present our initial steps towards the development of a large-scale seismic modeling workflow in Julia which provides a framework for wave-equation based inversion methods like full waveform inversion or least squares migration. Our framework is based on the Devito tool for optimized finite difference computations that generates highly optimized code from symbolic PDEs. We aim at developing a flexible workflow which is based on abstract operators and allows coding that is “close to the math”, while at the same time relying on extremely fast and efficient, state of the art wave equation solvers.
