Wave mode separation for a surface with slope using the free-surface response

Saul E. Guevara, Gary F. Margrave, and Don C. Lawton


A method for wave mode separation for multicomponent receivers on a sloping surface is presented in this work. It takes into account the free surface effect and assumes that receivers are placed vertically on the earth's surface. The method was tested with synthetic data, showing promising results.
