Irregular Surface Problems Datuming the data from irregular surface to flat surface Motivation

Problem: Irregular Surface Using Ghost extrapolation Motivation RTM migrates directly from the irregular surface Air Surface Stair step Subsurface Solution: Ghost RTM

Outline Summary Theory Use ghost extrapolation to reduce stair-step diffractions from irregular surfaces Numerical Example Tests on Marmousi model and Foothills model Motivation Irregular surface problems

Least-squares Migration

Workflow of Multisource LSM with Topography 1.Forward modeling with topography to calculate the data residual 3. Update the reflectivity using the conjugate gradient method 2. Calculate gradient (RTM image) of data residual with topography Blended encoded shot gathers

Forward Modeling with Topography Difficulty : Implement free surface boundary condition Calculate the pressure on the points near by the free surface Acoustic equation: Ghost point
