Report 6 ARBITRARY PARAMETER EXTRACTION WITH STATIONARY PHASE MIGRATION

Abstract

Re ectivity is not the only specular-ray related parameter that can be obtained through prestack migration. Surprisingly, parameters such as the source and receiver coordinates, the traveltime, the incidence angles, departure angles from the source points, emergence angles at the receiver points and the re ector normals can be obtained by prestack migration. Such parameters have many potential applications in stationary phase migration, traveltime inversion, migration velocity analysis, and AVO studies. Numerical tests on synthetic and eld seismic data show that such parameters can be accurately extracted by stationary phase migration.
