With controlled-source seismic interferometry we aim to redatum sources to downhole receiver locations without requiring a velocity model. Interferometry is generally based on a source integral over cross-correlation (CC) pairs of full, perturbed (timegated), or decomposed wavefields. We provide an overview of ghosts, multiples, and spatial...

In 1968, Jon Claerbout showed that the reflection response of a 1D acoustic medium can be reconstructed by autocorrelating the transmission response. Since then, several authors have derived relationships for reconstructing Green's functions at the surface, using crosscorrelations of (noise) recordings that were taken at the surface and that...

By crosscorrelating transmission recordings of acoustic or elastic wave fields at two points, one can retrieve the reflection response between these two points. This technique has previously been applied to measured elastic data using diffuse wave-field recordings. These recordings should be relatively very long. The retrieval can also be...

Seismic interferometry refers to the process of retrieving new seismic responses by crosscorrelating seismic observations at different receiver locations. Seismic migration is the process of forming an image of the subsurface by wavefield extrapolation. Comparing the expressions for backward propagation known from migration literature with the...

The simulation of migrated and inverted data is hampered by the high computational cost of generating 3D synthetic data, followed by processes of migration and inversion. For example, simulating the migrated seismic signature of subtle stratigraphic traps demands the expensive exercise of 3D forward modeling, followed by 3D migration of the...

One application of seismic interferometry is to retrieve the impulse response (Green's function) from crosscorrelation of ambient seismic noise. Various researchers show results for retrieving the surface-wave part of the Green's function. However, reflection retrieval has proven more challenging. We crosscorrelate ambient seismic noise,...

Various researchers have shown that accurate redatuming of controlled seismic sources to downhole receiver locations can be achieved without requiring a velocity model. By placing receivers in a horizontal or deviated well and turning them into virtual sources, accurate images can be obtained even below a complex near-subsurface. Examples...

Deblending of simultaneous-source data is usually considered to be an underdetermined inverse problem, which can be solved by an iterative procedure, assuming additional constraints like sparsity and coherency. By exploiting the fact that seismic data are spatially band-limited, deblending of densely sampled sources can be carried out as a...

In this study, non-physical (ghost) scattered surface waves are used to obtain the location of a near surface scatterer. The ghost is obtained from application of seismic interferometry to only one source at the surface. Different locations for virtual sources are chosen and ghost scattered surface waves for each of these virtual-source...

It has recently been shown that the response to a virtual source in the subsurface can be derived from reflection data at the surface and an estimate of the direct arrivals between the virtual source and the surface. Hence, unlike for seismic interferometry, no receivers are needed inside the medium. This new method recovers the complete...

The crosscorrelation of ambient acoustic noise observed at two receivers yields the impulse response between these receivers, assuming that the noise field is diffuse. In practical situations the noise field exhibits directionality, which imprints the angle-dependent correlation function. For the situation of a directional scatterer in a...

Recently we introduced a new approach for retrieving the Green's response to a virtual source in the subsurface from reflection data at the surface. Unlike in seismic interferometry, no receiver is needed at the position of the virtual source. Here we present the theory behind this new method. First we introduce the Green's function G and a so...

The investigation and detection of near-surface structures (such as cavities, caves, sinkholes, tunnels, mineshafts, buried objects, archeological ruins, water reservoir, etc.) is important to mitigate geo- and environmental hazards. In a former study, we suggested a method based on active-source seismic interferometry for locating the...

Seismic interferometry is a technique that allows one to reconstruct the full wavefield originating from a virtual source inside a medium, assuming a receiver is present at the virtual source location. We discuss a method that creates a virtual source inside a medium from reflection data measured at the surface, without needing a receiver inside...

The successful surface waves retrieval in solid?Earth seismology using long?time correlations and subsequent tomographic images of the crust have sparked interest in extraction of subsurface information from noise in the exploration seismology. Subsurface information in exploration seismology is usually derived from body?wave reflections >?1?Hz,...

In recent work we showed with heuristic arguments that the Green's response to a virtual source in the subsurface can be obtained from reflection data at the surface. This method is called “Green's function retrieval beyond seismic interferometry”, because, unlike in seismic interferometry, no receiver is needed at the position of the virtual...

Recent research showed that the Marchenko equation can be used to construct the Green’s function for a virtual source position in the subsurface. The method requires the reflection response at the surface and an estimate of the direct arrival of the wavefield, traveling from the virtual source location to the acquisition surface. In this paper,...

Complex overburdens can severely distort transmitted wavefields, posing serious challenges for seismic imaging. In Marchenko redatuming, we use an iterative scheme to estimate so-called focusing functions, which can be used to redatum seismic wavefields to a specified level below the major complexities in the subsurface. Unlike in conventional...

The methodology of Green’s function retrieval by cross-correlation has led to many interesting applications for passive and controlled-source acoustic measurements. In all applications, a virtual source is created at the position of a receiver. Here a method is discussed for Green’s function retrieval from controlled-source reflection data,...
