Abstract

Seismic reflection data (CDP-Common Depth Point shooting) are normally collected on the earth’s surface in such a way that as many as 24 different source and receiver pairs share the same midpoint location. These ASR (Arbitrary Source and Receiver position) data are processed in order to simulate CSR (Coincident Source and Receiver position) data. Image reconstruction for geologic structures are commonly applied by extrapolating these CSR data into the earth.
