Technical Paper: Matching Pursuit Methods Applied to Multicomponent Marine Seismic Acquisition – The Issue of Crossline Aliasing

Society: EAGE
Paper Number: A043
Presentation Date: 2011

In this work we analyze the theoretical aspects of spatial aliasing in the crossline direction in marine seismic acquisition. We also explain the benefits of the additional measurements acquired by a multicomponent towed streamer, able to measure the three components of the particle velocity vector in addition to the pressure wavefield. We propose matching pursuit based techniques to reconstruct a 3D full bandwidth seismic wavefield on a fine receiver grid. The techniques that we describe process multicomponent seismic data; they calculate the desired 3D wavefield with satisfactory quality despite the severe aliasing that affects each of the individual input measurements in the crossline direction.
