Abstract

Recent field tests show the feasibility of achieving superresolution in migration images. To partly realize this with practical exploration data, we introduce a modified form of reverse time migration, denoted as GDM, with an imaging condition tuned to multiple scattered events. GDM imaging of the SEG/EAGE synthetic data shows higher resolution in the migration image, but at the expense of an increased noise level. A limitation is that superresolution property can only be achieved with a highly accurate velocity model.
