2D internal multiple prediction in coupled plane wave domain

Jian Sun, Kristopher A. H. Innanen

Internal multiples can be constructed by primary events based on inverse scattering series (ISS) algorithm. More benefits can be achieved in plane wave domain, such as improved numerical accuracy, no large offset artifacts, and less computing time. In view of that, the plane wave domain ISS algorithm can be a promising way to eliminate internal multiples on a full 2D case. We presented 2D internal multiple predictions using ISS algorithm in coupled plane wave domain. The coupled - pg - ps transform offers a straightforward approach to obtain the input. Some preliminary results are achieved and further research is ongoing. Be that as it may, those preliminary results still exemplify ISS algorithm in the coupled plane wave domain can provide much more relevant and practical profits.
