The solution of the inverse scattering problem for the one-dimensional Schrödinger equation is given by the Marchenko equation. Recently, a Marchenko-type equation has been derived for three-dimensional (3D) acoustic wave fields, whose solution has been shown to recover the Green's functions from points within the medium to its exterior, using only(More)
State-of-the-art methods to image the earth’s subsurface using active-source seismic reflection data involve reverse time migration. This and other standard seismic processing methods such as velocity analysis provide best results only when all waves in the data set are primaries (waves reflected only once). A variety of methods are therefore deployed as(More)
Estimating image uncertainty is fundamental to guiding the interpretation of geoscientific tomographic maps. We reveal novel uncertainty topologies (loops) which indicate that while the speeds of both low- and high-velocity anomalies may be well constrained, their locations tend to remain uncertain. The effect is widespread: loops dominate around a third of(More)
An automated algorithm uses recordings of acoustic energy across a spatially-distributed array to derive information about multiply scattered acoustic waves in heterogeneous media. The arrival time and scattering-order of each recorded diffracted acoustic wave, and the exact sequence of diffractors encountered by that wave, are estimated without requiring(More)
Source-receiver interferometry allows Green's functions between sources and receivers to be estimated by means of convolution and cross-correlation of other wavefields. Source-receiver interferometry has been observed to work surprisingly well in practical applications when theoretical requirements (e.g., complete enclosing boundaries of other sources and(More)
Geophysical methods are important tools for a wide range of geological, hydrogeological, and engineering investigations. Conventional processing techniques for electromagnetic tools often use approximations that may be either inappropriate or only provide limited resolution. Higher resolution images can be derived by using more sophisticated approaches that(More)
