INTRODUCTION Gaussian packets (GP), also called (space-time) Gaussian beams (Raslton 1983) or quasiphotons (Babich and Ulin 1981), are high- frequency asymptotic space-time particle-like solutions of the wave equation(Klimes 1989; Klimes 2004). They are also waves whose envelops at a given time are nearly Gaussian functions. A Gaussian packet is concentrated to a real-valued space-time ray (in a stationary medium, a Gaussian packet propagates along its-real- valued spatial central ray), as a Gaussian beam to a spatial ray. Decomposition of the data using optimized Gaussian Packets and related migration in common-shot domain (Zacek 2004) are time- consuming. We discussed an efficient way to use Gaussian Packets to data decomposition and migration.

5
Gaussian Packet In the two-dimensional case, a Gaussian Packet can be written as is arbitrary positive parameter, and it can be understood as the center frequency of the wave packet. Using Tayler expansion, the phase function can be further expanded to its second order

6
Propagating a Gaussian Packet While propagating, a Gaussian Packet can nearly keep its Gaussian shape in space in any given time. To propagate a Gaussian Packet, we need to calculate is the ray-theory slowness vector which can be determined by standard ray tracing at the central point and is complex-valued and determines the shape of the Gaussian Packet, and its evolution along the spatial central ray is determined by quantities calculated by dynamic ray tracing. Amplitude can also be calculated during dynamic ray tracing.

Propagating a Gaussian Packet Profiles of Gaussian Packets When the Gaussian Packet can be written as Initial Parameters of Gaussian Packet: Beam width and pulse duration.

9
Data representation When the Gaussian Packet can be written as Parameters of Gaussian Packet Space center location Time center location Central frequency Ray parameter Gaussian window width along space direction Gaussian window width along time direction

10
Data representation The inner product between data and Gaussian Packet can directly provides us the information of the local slope at certain central frequency in the local time and space area. Cross term between time and space

11
Data representation Because of the cross term between time and space, decomposition of the data into optimized Gaussian Packets becomes intricate.

12
Data representation It is obvious that when is small enough, the cross term can be ignored. Thus, the Gaussian Packets are reduced into tensor product of two Gabor function. To fully cover the phase space, the time and frequency interval should satisfy The space and ray parameter interval should satisfy

13
Data representation When the beam width is given as (Hill,1990) and time duration as the intervals can be written as The field contributed by Gaussian Packets at the point (x, z) and time t

Numerical Examples Migration for a zero-offset data The exploding reflector principle (Claerbout 1985) states that the seismic image is equal to the downward-continued, zero-offset data evaluated at time zero, if the seismic velocities are halved.

Migration for a zero-offset data

36
Conclusions we have introduced and tested an efficient Gaussian Packet zero-offset migration method. The representation of the data using Gaussian Packets directly provides the local time slope and position information. We also have shown that with proper choice of time duration parameter, only Gaussian Packets with few central frequencies are needed to obtain propagated seismic data. Imaging for a 4 layer velocity model zero-offset dataset shows valid of the method. Although velocity has to be smoothed before ray tracing, this method can be competitive as a preliminary imaging method, and the localized time property is suitable for target-oriented imaging.
