Diffraction Imaging

Abstract

Selected papers illustrating diffractions on seismic data are presented in Chapter 4, including the responses to faulting, near surface anomalies, seafloor features, and topography. The seismic data examples illustrate the strong diffraction response of subsurface discontinuity or heterogeneity.

Abstract

For a two-dimensional situation, a direct solution exists to the problem of locating a point diffractor below plane layers of constant interval velocity and varying dip. The required surface measurements are obtainable from an arbitrary portion of the observed diffraction curve on the stacked section. The method resembles the computing of plane dipping layers o£ constant interval velocity from common depth point surface measurements.
