Bayesian-based data assimilation methods integrate observational data into geophysical forward models to obtain the temporal evolution of an improved state vector, including its uncertainties. We explore the potential of a variant, a particle method, to estimate mechanical parameters of the overriding plate during the interseismic period....

Minimum-phase properties are well-understood for scalar functions where they can be used as physical constraint for phase reconstruction. Existing scalar applications of the latter in geophysics include, for example the reconstruction of transmission from acoustic reflection data, or multiple elimination via the augmented acoustic Marchenko...

Our ability to forecast earthquakes and slow slip events is hampered by limited information on the current state of stress on faults. Ensemble data assimilation methods permit estimating the state by combining physics-based models and observations, while considering their uncertainties. We use an ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) to estimate...

Previous studies indicate that scattering may pose a trade-off for the performance of seismic interferometry (SI) applications for retrieving body-wave reflections of a target reflector. While it has been demonstrated that a higher scattering strength of the overburden improves the Green's function estimated by cross-correlation SI, other...

Geophysicists have widely used least-squares reverse-time migration (LSRTM) to obtain high-resolution images of the subsurface. However, LSRTM is computationally expensive and it can suffer from multiple reflections. Recently, a target-oriented approach to LSRTM has been proposed, which focuses the wavefield above the target of interest....

The induced seismicity in the Groningen gas field, The Netherlands, presents contrasted spatio-temporal patterns between the central area and the south west area. Understanding the origin of this contrast requires a thorough assessment of two factors: (1) the stress development on the Groningen faults and (2) the frictional response of the...

In seismic exploration methods, imperfect spatial sampling at the surface causes a lack of illumination at the target in the subsurface. The hampered image quality at the target area of interest causes uncertainties in reservoir monitoring and production, which can have a substantial economic impact. Especially in the case of a complex...

Traditionally, reservoir elastic parameters inversion suffers from the overburden multiple scattering and transmission imprint in the local input data used for the target-oriented inversion. In this paper, we present a full-wavefield approach, called reservoir-oriented joint migration inversion (JMI-res), to estimate the high-resolution...

Determination of soil material damping is known to be difficult and uncertain, especially in the offshore environment. Using an advanced inversion methodology based on multichannel spectral analysis, Scholte and Love wave measurements are used to characterize subsea soil from a North Sea site. After normalization, a determinant-based objective...

Instrumental timing and phase errors are a notorious problem in seismic data acquisition and processing. These can be frequency independent, for example due to clock drift, but may also be frequency dependent, for example due to imperfectly known instrument responses. A technique is presented that allows both types of errors to be recovered...

This paper proposes a reflectivity constraint for velocity estimation to optimally solve the inverse problem for active seismic imaging. This constraint is based on the velocity model derived from the definition of reflectivity and acoustic impedance. The constraint does not require any prior information of the subsurface and large extra...

Least-squares inversion of seismic arrivals can provide remarkably detailed models of the Earth's subsurface. However, cycle skipping associated with these oscillatory arrivals is the main cause for local minima in the least-squares objective function. Therefore, it is often difficult for descent methods to converge to the solution without an...

Though well known for layer boundaries, the use of amplitude-versus-offset (AVO) variations for non-welded boundaries like fractures is not yet investigated. Depending on the seismic wavelength used, fractures can be regarded as thin, compliant zones in rocks, in different scales. We explore the potential of multiangle AVO inversion of P-P and P...

A novel application of seismic interferometry (SI) and Marchenko imaging using both surface and borehole data is presented. A series of redatuming schemes is proposed to combine both data sets for robust deep local imaging in the presence of velocity uncertainties. The redatuming schemes create a virtual acquisition geometry where both sources...

Characterizing the spatially heterogeneous fracture compliance through use of elastic waves has the potential to illuminate the hydraulic and mechanical properties along a fracture. We formulate the inverse scattering problem to estimate the heterogeneous compliance distribution along a single fracture embedded in a homogeneous background. For...

Full waveform inversion (FWI) has the potential to recover detailed quantitative property models of the subsurface, but the process is computationally expensive. Currently available computer systems do not allow to use the full bandwidth of the acquired seismic data, which effectively reduces the resolution that can be obtained. In this paper,...

Assuming that transmission responses are known between the surface and a particular depth level in the subsurface, seismic sources can be effectively mapped to this level by a process called interferometric redatuming. After redatuming, the obtained wavefields can be used for imaging below this particular depth level. Interferometric redatuming...

Wave-equation traveltime tomography tries to obtain a subsurface velocity model from seismic data, either passive or active, that explains their traveltimes. A key step is the extraction of traveltime differences, or relative phase shifts, between observed and modelled finite-frequency waveforms. A standard approach involves a correlation of the...
