Summary: The invariant imbedding method combined with the time domain wave splitting technique is applied to the inverse problem for the telegraph equation t2u=(1/r)(pu)-btu+qu in a stratified half-space. The zeroth, second and fourth moments of the 3-D fields are used to reduce the three-dimensional problem to a set of one-dimensional problems. The imbedding equations for R0, R2 and R4, respectively the zeroth, second and fourth moments of the reflection operator, are derived. Numerical results for the reconstruction are presented using the reflection data on the surface.
