Technical Paper: Crossline Wavefield Reconstruction from Multi-Component Streamer Data: Multichannel Interpolation by Matching Pursuit

Society: SEG
Paper Number:
Presentation Date: 2010

We introduce a new technique that uses multicomponent seismic measurements that would be recorded by a true multicomponent streamer to reconstruct the seismic wavefield at any desired position between streamers. This method, called Multichannel Interpolation by Matching Pursuit (MIMAP), operates on pressure and crossline particle motion measurements. As a data-dependent technique, MIMAP can interpolate severely aliased data without any assumptions about seismic events such as linearity or the model related to the seismic wavefield. MIMAP has the capability to perform well in the presence of irregular sampling and is robust even when only a small number of samples are available.
