Compared with other exploration methods, Rayleigh wave exploration method has many merits. From forward analysis, dispersive curve's pick up and inversion analysis three respects, the paper details the present research situation of Rayleigh wave exploration, then discusses the practical and theoretical problems still existing in Rayleigh wave exploration.
