A unified approach to complex seismic imaging problems
Two current challenges in seismic imaging are to obtain more detailed images of complex structures from reflection data and to constrain the regional structure of the Earth using wide-angle data. These are complex problems ...
The effect of caustics in acoustic inverse scattering experiments
Most inversion techniques described in the literature rely on the validity of ray tracing, which breaks down in the presence of caustics. The linearized acoustic inverse problem with constant reference velocity is analyzed ...
Wave equation migration velocity analysis by differential semblance optimization
Differential semblance measures the deviation from flatness or focus of image gathers. The differential semblance objective function posed on the sub-surface offset domain responds smoothly to velocity changes. Therefore ...
Global analysis of linearized inversion for the acoustic wave equation
To predict the location of natural resources and reduce the cost of exploration, geophysicists rely on various techniques to map the internal structure of the earth. One common mapping method probes the earth's interior ...
Scattering of acoustic energy from rough deep ocean seafloor: A numerical modeling approach
The highly heterogeneous and anelastic nature of deep ocean seafloor results in complex reverberation as acoustic energy incident from the overlaying water column interacts and scatters from it. To gain a deeper understanding ...
