In Chapter 5, processing and analysis methods are provided in detail for PS-waves in terms of key processing stages. Unique for 3C seismic data are rotation of coordinate axes, statics computation, S-wave splitting analysis, polarization filters, and vector fidelity compensation. In terms of transformation to zero offset, vertical VP/VS (? 0) for registration, common-conversion-point (CCP) gathering, and converted-wave NMO are emphasized. Other important basic processing steps are also reviewed: deconvolution, dual-sensor summation, and elastic wavefield decomposition. In terms of VSP data, conventional processing and wavefield separation are reviewed, and advanced anisotropy analyses are highlighted.
