- Test Summary
- LSM showed a significant resiliency to artifacts from poor acquisition geometry.
- LSM has an ability to reduce data acquisition expense.

- Theory
- LSM resiliency to artifacts from poor acquisition geometry
- LSM image sensitivity to wavelet estimation errors
- Multi-scale LSM applied to poststack JAPEX data
- Target-oriented LSM applied to poststack PEMEX data
- Conclusions

- LSM algorithm requires a source wavelet.
- I tested LSM image sensitivity to wavelet estimation errors in the following 2 cases :
- LSM with correct wavelet,
- LSM with a Ricker wavelet (15 Hz).

- Test Summary
- An accurate estimate of the source wavelet is important to obtain an accurate LSM image.
- However, LSM images are usually better than the standard migration image.

- Starts by estimating a low wavenumber reflectivity model in order to avoid getting trapped in a local minimum.
- Band-pass filters, where the frequency bandwidth increases with the number of iterations, were iteratively applied to the input data.

Acquired in1990s.

Since acquisition geometry is sparse, noise is dominant in the shallowpart.

Preliminary Result of LSM Image after 4 iterations

Kirchhoff Migration Image

- Numerical results show:
- LSM has a significant resilience to artifacts from poor acquisition geometries .
- an accurate waveletestimate provides an accurate LSM image.

- faster convergence rate is provided by a multi-scale migration scheme.
- 2D LSM is a practical means for improving quality image.
- Encouraging results for TO LSM obtained from the 3D data subset.

- GOAL: 3D LSMin less than 10 iterations.
- Further improvement in efficiency will be investigated.
