F-x statics for P-S seismic data

Wai-kin Chan and Robert R. Stewart


A technique of solving statics without velocity information in the f-x domain wasproposed by Chan and Stewart (1996) and was tested on a structural Marmousi dataset with promising results. The major difference of this technique from conventional routines is that the correlation model is built from the f-x prediction rather than a velocity dependent stack trace. In this paper, the results of applying the f-x statics routine to the Blackfoot P-S dataset is presented. This technique is believed to be especially important in solving statics for the structural converted wave data, without depending on the asymptotic common conversion point binning.
