Geometric Theory of Inversion and Seismic Imaging II: Inversion + Datuming + Static + Enhancement

Authors: August Lau, Chuan Yin

The goal of seismic processing is to convert input data collected in the field into a meaningful image based on signal processing and wave equation processing and other algorithms. It is normally a global approach like tomography or FWI (full waveform inversion). Seismic imaging or inversion methods fail partly due to the thin-lens effect or rough surfaces. These interfaces are non-invertible. To mitigate the problem, we propose a more stable method for seismic imaging in 4 steps as layer stripping approach of INVERSION + DATUMING + STATIC + ENHANCEMENT.
