Crooked-line seismic data processing at Castle-mountain

Kevin W. Hall, Hanxing Lu and Robert R. Stewart


As part of the 2006 geophysics field school, a ~6.5 km long crooked-line seismic survey was conducted. Two different types of receivers were used, analog single component geophones and digital multicomponent VectorSeis. This report details the processing results for the analog geophones. The data have been processed as a crookedline up to a final post-stack phase-shift migrated section. The results are very encouraging. A preliminary interpretation shows that the migrated section is geologically reasonable, in the sense that it can be compared to existing geologic cross-sections. Crooked-line processing of the multicomponent data is in progress.
