Title:
Mitigation of artifacts in rtm with migration kernel decomposition
Authors:
Zhan, Ge; Schuster, Gerard T. ( 0000-0001-7532-1587 )
Abstract:
The migration kernel for reverse-time migration (RTM) can be decomposed into four component kernels using Born scattering and migration theory. Each component kernel has a unique physical interpretation and can be interpreted differently. In this paper, we present a generalized diffraction-stack migration approach for reducing RTM artifacts via decomposition of migration kernel. The decomposition leads to an improved understanding of migration artifacts and, therefore, presents us with opportunities for improving the quality of RTM images.
