In recent years, the acquisition, processing, imaging and fracture detection capabilities using multicomponent PP- and PS-wave seismic have been improved. Unlike traditional narrow-azimuth P-wave data, multicomponent wide-azimuth data are more sensitive to the presence of seismic anisotropy. Two types of anisotropy are commonly considered within exploration seismology: vertical transverse isotropy (VTI) due to layering of sedimentary rocks, and horizontal transverse isotropy (HTI) due to vertical fracturing. Intensive efforts have been devoted to studying the effects of these types of anisotropy on both PP- and PS-waves.  Nevertheless, there are still some fundamental issues which need to be investigated, and this thesis aims to address some of these issues.
