Marchenko imaging for 2D and 3D complex structures—with field applications to sub-salt and sub-basalt imaging
Seismic imaging is a geophysical technique that uses elastic waves to form images of geologic formations in the subsurface. Seismic imaging has become the most reliable diagnostic tool for modern hydrocarbon exploration and production. Conventional imaging methods, however, rely on the single-scattering assumption, which requires the recorded seismic data to not include multiples—waves that are reflected more than once in the subsurface before reaching the receivers. While the surface related multiples can be effectively suppressed with the Surface Related Multiples Elimination (SRME) method, ...
