Ocean-bottom cable (OBC) recording has led to avenues in elastic wave imaging in marine environments. In this paper, we review many of these applications including:
1. Suppression of receiver-side multiples with dual-sensors.
2. Enhanced imaging using compressional to shear (P-S) converted waves.
3. The attenuation of free-surface multiples using combined streamer and ocean-bottom recordings.
In this review, we describe theory, models, and real data applications for elastic wave imaging of ocean-bottom seismic recordings.
