Prestack multicomponent migration

Prestack elastic migration by displacement potential extrapolation is a mixed, systematic, and function‐blocked vector wavefield migration algorithm. A new wavefield extrapolation method for inhomogeneous media is introduced here according to the following sequence: displacements ← potentials ← extrapolation of the potentials ← displacements, which is relatively accurate and not computer‐time intensive. Traveltimes of both direct downgoing P‐ and S‐waves, which are necessary in elastic migration, are calculated with a modified convolutional acoustic forward modeling program applicable to complex structures. A new image condition based on the time consistent principle is developed. It involves first obtaining an image condition section...
