A kinematic comparisons of conventional processing, DMOPSI, and EOM

John C. Bancroft, Gary F. Margrave, Hugh D. Geiger

It has been suggested that equivalent offset migration (EOM) is identical to Gardner's DMO-PSI. This paper is intended to clarify the differences between the two methods by comparing the kinematics of each method. In addition, a comparison with the conventional processing methods of NMO, NMO and DMO, and NMO, DMO, and poststack migration, is included.
