Abstract

Exploration of earth resources requires an accurate seismic image of the subsurface, which requires an accurate estimate of seismic velocities. Only by seismic imaging can we obtain a geologically plausible representation of the geometry of the near-surface and subsurface layers, including the ability to confirm the presence of faults. The subsurface velocity-depth model and the associated seismic image are two companions that complement each other.
