Technical Paper: Limited-aperture Acquisition Compensation for Shot Profile Imaging

Society: EAGE
Paper Number: P262
Presentation Date: 2011


In this paper we develop shot-profile migration weights that enhance a given imaging condition by compensating for illumination due to limited/finite aperture receiver acquisition geometry. We demonstrate our method on the Sigsbee model using reverse time-migration (RTM).

Although our example is for seismic imaging, the proposed method for derivation of the weights can be extended to other imaging modalities, such as radar or other electromagnetic based imaging modalities, sonar, thermo-acoustic imaging, ultrasound or other medical imaging modalities, etc.
