Radon transforms and multiple attenuation of White Rose data

Zhihong (Nancy) Cao, John C. Bancroft

One of the current hot topics in exploration geophysics is multiple attenuation. Various Radon transform methods have received attention in this research area. This report describes the analysis and testing of several formulations of the Radon transform technique including the least-squares solution, the frequency domain high resolution solution and the x-t domain high resolution Radon transform, which are commonly used in industry. After testing with synthetic seismic data, multiple elimination was performed on White Rose field data by applying the high resolution Radon transform.
