Seismic inverse scattering by reverse time migration

Stolk, C (University of Amsterdam)
Tuesday 13 December 2011, 09:30-10:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We will consider the linearized inverse scattering problem from seismic imaging. While the first reverse time migration algorithms were developed some thirty years ago, they have only recently become popular for practical applications. We will analyze a modification of the reverse time migration algorithm that turns it into a method for linearized inversion, in the sense of a parametrix. This is proven using tools from microlocal analysis. We will also discuss the limitations of the method and show some numerical results.
