We introduce a new partial prestack-migration operator called “azimuth moveout” (AMO) that rotates the azimuth and modifies the offset of 3-D prestack data. Followed by partial stacking, AMO can reduce the computational cost of 3-D prestack imaging. We have successfully applied AMO to the partial stacking of a 3-D marine data set over a range of offsets and azimuths. When AMO is included in the partial-stacking procedure, highfrequency steeply dipping energy is better preserved than when… CONTINUE READING
