Multi-source Least Squares Migration and Waveform Inversion
Wei Dai, Ge Zhan, Xin Wang, and G. Schuster KAUST and University of Utah This is an overview of some salient results from our 2003 UTAM research.

Outline Fast Multisource+Precond. Theory
Multisource Least Squares Migration Multisource Waveform Inversion Conclusion

RTM Problem & Possible Soln.
Problem: RTM computationally costly Partial Solution: Multisource LSM RTM Preconditioning speeds convergence by factor 2-3 LSM reduces crosstalk My talk is organized in the following way: 1. The first part is motivation. I will talk about a least squares migration (LSM ) advantages and challenges. 2. The second part is theory for a deblurring filter, which is an alternative method to LSM. 3. In the third part, I will show a numerical result of a deblurring filter. 4. The fourth is the main part of my talk. Deblurred LSM (DLSM) is a fast LSM with a deblurring filter. I will explain how to use the filter in LSM algorithm. 5. Then I will show numerical results of the DLSM. 6. Then I will conclude my presentation. Each figure has a slide number is shown at the footer. 3 3

Velocity and density values are assigned to the layers based on the rock and fluid types. I created a zero-offset section from these models.

Did Deblurring Help? Iteration # Standard precond. CG CG deblurring
1.4 Standard precond. CG ||Data Residual|| Those are velocity and density models. Velocity and density values are assigned to the layers based on the rock and fluid types.

Conclusions 1. Empirical Results: Multisrc. LSM effective in suppressing crosstalk for up to 40 source supergather, but at loss of subtle detail. Did not achieve breakeven 2.5x > 1x. 2. Deblurring precond. >> Standard 1/r precond. 2 3. Blending Limitation: Overdetermined>Undetermined Second I compute reflectivity model within this offset range from the velocity and density models. I also created a source wavelet that mimics an air gun source signature. Fdom = 25 Hz. T 4. Future: Better deblurring [L L] and regularizer -1 11

Multiscale Waveform Tomography
1. Collect data d(x,t) 2. Generate synthetic data d(x,t) by FD method syn. 3. Adjust v(x,z) until ||d(x,t)-d(x,t) || minimized by CG. syn. 2 4. To prevent getting stuck in local minima: a). Invert early arrivals initially mute b). Use multiscale: low freq high freq. 7
