Processing seismic data for high spatial resolution

John C. Bancroft, Helen Isaac, and Nassir Saeed


High spatial resolution has been observed on the Hussar data that shows apparent faulting. We propose that this high resolution results from processing the data with common scatterpoint gathers that allow high resolution velocity analysis, combined with velocity modifications that allow the focusing of reflections that come from reflectors that are oblique to the 2D line. To date, we have not been able to replicate this spatial resolution with conventional methods.
