Residual statics. The application of elevation statics, or field statics, or field statics followed by refraction statics never leaves the seismic data completely free of static anomalies. These “residual” static anomalies are due to unaccounted for variations in the low velocity layer. No matter how well the deterministic technique may derive velocities and thicknesses of the near surface, it leaves something to be desired.
