1.5D internal multiple prediction in MATLAB

Kristopher A. H. Innanen

ABSTRACT

We present a 1.5D MATLAB implementation of the inverse scattering series internal multiple prediction algorithm developed by Weglein and collaborators in the 1990s. We discuss the transformation of the data from the space and time domain to those of wavenumber and pseudo-depth, and the subsequent prediction operation, and illustrate the procedure with a synthetic example. Our plan forward is to apply with the 1.5D algorithm the methods developed by Hernandez for the 1D algorithm (in this report), which involve stepping from synthetic, to laboratory, and finally to land data.
