Marchenko Imaging is a new technology in geophysics, which enables us to retrieve Green's functions at any point in the subsurface having only reflection data. One of the assumptions of the Marchenko method is that the medium is lossless. One way to circumvent this assumption is to find a compensation parameter for the lossy reflection series so...

Marchenko imaging is a novel imaging technique that is capable to retrieve images from single-sided reflection measurements free of artefacts related to internal multiples (e.g. Behura et al., 2014; Broggini et al., 2012). An essential ingredient of Marchenko imaging is the so-called focusing function which can<br/>be retrieved from reflection...

Recent developments in exploration seismology have enabled the creation of virtual sources and/or virtual receivers in the subsurface from reflection measurements at the earth's surface. Unlike in seismic interferometry, no physical instrument (receiver or source) is needed at the position of the virtual source or receiver. Moreover, no detailed...

A revised Marchenko scheme that avoids the need to compute the Green’s function is presented for artefact-free image of the subsurface with single-sided reflection response as input. The initial downgoing Green’s function which can be modelled from a macro model is needed for solving the revised Marchenko equations instead of its inverse. The...

We derive a fast acoustic inversion method for a piecewise homogeneous horizontally layered medium. The method obtains medium parameters from the reflection response. The method can be implemented to obtain the parameters on either side of a reflector at an arbitrary depth. Three processing steps lead to the inversion result. First, we solve a...

We present a three-dimensional scheme that can be used to compute the electromagnetic impulse response between any two subsurface points from surface reflection data measured at a single surface of a lossless medium. The scheme first computes a virtual vertical radar profile using the Marchenko scheme from which focusing wavefields are...

We propose a novel directional decomposition operator for wavefield snapshots in heterogeneous-velocity media. The proposed operator demonstrates the link between the amplitude of pressure and particlevelocity plane waves in the wavenumber domain. The proposed operator requires two spatial Fourier transforms (one forward and one backward) per...

In a time-lapse experiment, changes in a reservoir cause changes in the reflection response. We discuss a method which predicts these changes from the baseline survey and a model of the changed reservoir. This method, which takes all multiple<br/>scattering into account, is significantly more efficient than modeling the response of the entire...

A standard procedure in processing vertical seismic profile (VSP) data is the separation of up-and downgoing wavefields. We show that the up-down wavefields in boreholes can be reconstructed using only singlecomponent borehole data, given that a full set of surface reflection data is also available. No medium parameters are required. The method...

The question whether multiples are signal or noise is subject of ongoing debate. In this paper we consider correlation and deconvolution imaging methods and analyse to what extent multiples contribute to the image in these methods. Our starting point is the assumption that at a specific depth level the full downgoing and upgoing fields (both...

We compare the coupled Marchenko equations without free-surface multiples to the coupled Marchenko equations including free-surface multiples. When using the conventional method of iterative substitution to solve these equations, a difference in convergence behaviour is observed, suggesting that there is a fundamental difference in the...

A number of seismic processing methods, including velocity analysis (Sheriff and Geldart, 1999), make the assumption that recorded waves are primaries - that they have scattered only once (the Born approximation). Multiples then represent a source of coherent noise and must be suppressed to avoid artefacts. There are different approaches to...

The theory of data-driven true amplitude migration is presented for multicomponent marine seismic data. The Marchenko scheme is adapted to account for the ghost, free surface and internal multiple effects and works without the need to know the source wavelet. A true amplitude image is formed from the obtained focusing functions without ghost...

A modified implementation of Marchenko redatuming leads to a filter that removes internal multiples from reflection data. It produces local reflectivity at two-way travel time. The method creates new primary reflections resulting from emitted events that eliminate internal multiples. We call these non-physical<br/>primaries and their presence is...

Seismic interferometry is a method to retrieve Green’s functions for sources (or receivers) where there are only receivers (or sources, respectively). This can be done by correlationor deconvolution-based methods. In this work we present a<br/>new approach to reposition the seismic array from the earth’s surface to an arbitrary datum at depth...

The Marchenko equation can be used to retrieve the Green’s function at depth as a full function or decomposed into its upand downgoing parts. We show that the equation can be rewritten to create a decomposition scheme that can decompose a full wavefield, that was recorded at depth, into its up- and downgoing parts. We show that this can be done...

We present an adaptive double-focusing method for applying source-receiver Marchenko redatuming to field data. Receiver redatuming is achieved by a first focusing step, where the coupled Marchenko equations are iteratively solved for the oneway Green’s functions. Next, source redatuming is typically performed by a multi-dimensional deconvolution...

The homogeneous Green’s function is the Green’s function minus its timereversal. Many wavefield imaging applications make use of the homogeneous Green’s function in form of a closed boundary integral. Wapenaar et al. (2016a) derived an accurate single-sided homogeneous Green’s function representation that only requires sources/receivers on an...

We present an interferometric interpretation of the iterative Marchenko scheme including both free-surface multiples and internal multiples. Cross-correlations are used to illustrate the combination of causal and acausal events that are essential for the process of multiple removal. The first 4 steps in the scheme are discussed in detail, where...

We propose a novel acoustic decomposition operator for time slices, loosely based on conventional surface decomposition operators. The proposed operators hold for constant velocity models and require two 2D Fourier Transforms (one forward, one backward) per decomposed time slice per decomposition direction. We then demonstrate the capabilities...
