Residual Static Corrections

January 01, 1999

Chapter 3 showed that the derivation of datum static corrections was generally based on a fairly simple near-surface geologic model. The lack of detailed near-surface information leads to some inaccuracies in this model and therefore in the datum static corrections. In addition, datum static corrections are not a unique set of values since a change of the reference datum results in a different set of corrections. Chapter 2 covered the potentially rapid near-surface variations both as a function of depth and spatial location. The various methods used to define the near surface and to evaluate datum static cor-rections were described in Chapter 3. Additional details on uphole and refraction surveys were described in Chapters 4 and 5, respectively.
