Recent advances in survey design have led to conventional common-midpoint-based analysis being replaced by the subsurface-based seismic acquisition analysis and design, with the emphasis on advance techniques of illumination analysis. Amongst them are wave-equation-based seismic illumination analyses such as the so-called focal beam method. The...

Hydraulic properties of a fractured reservoir are often controlled by large fractures. In order to seismically detect and characterize them, a high-resolution imaging method is necessary. We apply a non-linear imaging condition to image fractures, considered as non-welded interfaces. We derive the imaging condition from the general correlation...

Despite the close links between the fields of time-reversed acoustics, seismic interferometry and Marchenko imaging, a number of subtle differences exist. This paper reviews the various focusing conditions of these methods, the causality/acausality aspects of the corresponding focusing wavefields, and the requirements with respect to...

Recent work on autofocusing with the Marchenko equation has shown how the Green's function for a virtual source in the subsurface can be obtained from reflection data. The response to the virtual source is the Green's function from the location of the virtual source to the surface. The Green's function is retrieved using only the reflection...

Nowadays, tomographic imaging techniques are inseparable from modern medical practice as they allow non-invasive 3-dimensional visualization of the interior of a patient in order to e.g. establish a medical diagnosis, or to monitor disease progression and the effects of disease treatment. Next to clinical use, tomographic imaging techniques are...

Seismic interferometry allows for the creation of new seismic traces by cross correlating existing ones. With sufficient sampling of remote-source positions, it is possible to create a virtual source record by transforming a receiver location into a virtual source. The imaging technique developed here directly retrieves reflectivity information...

We present an imaging method that creates a map of reflection coefficients in correct one-way time with no contamination from internal multiples using purely a filtering approach. The filter is computed from the measured reflection response and does not require a background model. We demonstrate that the filter is a focusing wavefield that...

Three-dimensional reverse-time migration with the constant-density acoustic wave equation requires an efficient numerical scheme for the computation of wavefields. An explicit finite-difference scheme in the time domain is a common choice. However, it requires a significant amount of disk space for the imaging condition. The frequency-domain...

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,...

Recently a new theory has been developed to retrieve a wavefield generated by a source on the surface and recorded at a point in the subsurface without the need for a receiver at that subsurface location. The scheme is presented for three-dimensional wavefields. It decomposes the electromagnetic field in up- and downgoing electric fields and in...

A significant problem with landfills is their aftercare period. A landfill is considered to be safe for the environment only after a relatively long period of time. Until it reaches such a condition, it has to be periodically treated. Not only are treatments very expensive, but they could be dangerous as well; for example, when barriers limiting...

Least-squares inversion of seismic reflection waveforms can reconstruct remarkably detailed models of the Earth’s subsurface. However, the cycle-skipping associated with the highfrequency waveforms are responsible for spurious local minima in its objective function. Therefore, it is often difficult for descent methods to converge to the true...

Blended source and/or simultaneous source acquisition for multi-offset and multi-azimuth VSP measurements can prove significantly beneficial in saving expensive borehole down-time. In the last few years, for the case of surface seismic data, it was proposed to redefine imaging and inversion of the blended data to handle the data directly without...

Changes in the subsurface can be imaged by subtracting seismic reflection data at two different states, one serving as the initial survey or base, and the second as the monitor survey. Conventionally, the reflection data are acquired by placing active seismic sources at the acquisition surface. Alternatively, these data can be acquired from...

A subsurface image obtained from seismic data is influenced by the acquisition geometry, as it contains an acquisition foot-print which can obscure the true reflection response of the subsurface. Hence, the acquisition geometry should be designed in such a way that it allows high-quality images and fulfils the criteria for reservoir...

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,...

Waveform inversion is the method of choice for determining a highly heterogeneous subsurface structure. However, conventional waveform inversion requires that the wavefield for each source is computed separately. This makes it very expensive for realistic 3D seismic surveys. Source-encoding waveform inversion, in which the sources are modeled...

We present a novel setup in which real objects made of different materials can be mixed optically. For the materials we chose mutually very different materials, which we assume to represent canonical modes. The appearance of 3D objects consisting of any material can be described as linear superposition of 3D objects of different canonical...

Since most of the easy hydrocarbon reservoirs have been found, accurate sub-surface imaging for oil and gas exploration and production is crucial. Seismic data can provide a band-limited reconstruction of impedance contrasts between different rock formations as well as a subsurface velocity model. Current compute power allows for the use of the...
