This paper presents a comparison of the results obtained by the application of several standard computing techniques to the computation of steep-dip seismic data. Formulas for the horizontal displacements and depths of reflection points are derived for the various methods, assuming velocity to be a parabolic function of depth, and the results obtained for a typical velocity function over a wide range of reflection and stepout times are compared graphically. In addition, the overall effect of applying these methods to the computation of a specific steep-dip asymmetric structural profile is studied.
