Internal multiple prediction in the tau-p domain: 1.5D synthetic results

Jian Sun, Kristopher A. H. Innanen

Internal multiples on land data can be predicted in an efficient way using inverse scattering series approach, and more elegant results could be achieved in plane wave domain than in wavenumber-pseudo depth domain. With a view to the feasibility of this algorithm on land data with thin layers and large offset, we carried out a complex model using Hussar well-log, and implemented 1.5D algorithm with a constant epsilon value in plane wave domain. All internal multiples were delicately predicted with a straightforward muting or cosine taper.
