The higher the resolution demanded from the interpretation of seismic data, the more care required in the acquisition and processing of that data. Of the processing steps that directly influence resolution, the one that is having the most impact on land data is the statics correction. Geophysical conferences have devoted entire technical sessions to statics. Seismic crews frequently undertake specific refraction surveys just to obtain good statics data. Here we outline a very simple solution to the statics problem that produces remarkable results.
