Workshop Proceeding

Seismic True Amplitudes
Journal of Seismic Exploration, Vol. 10, 2002
Edited by Martin Tygel

Proceedings of the Workshop held in Karlsruhe, 18-20 February 2001

The steady increase in vitality and interest for seismic amplitudes called for the organization of the Second Workshop on Seismic True Amplitudes. Also organized by the WIT Consortium and with the support of the EAGE and the SEG, the 2001 Workshop repeated the successful performance of its 1997 counterpart both in participation, as well as in number of presentations. The collection of 16 papers that composes these proceedings represent a careful selection of the 36 presentations that were put together after the second workshop.

Workshop Proceeding

Amplitude-Preserving Seismic Reflection Imaging
Seismic Applications Series, Vol. 2, 1997
Edited by Peter Hubral

These proceedings provide a unique selection from the altogether 39 papers that were presented at the Karlsruhe Workshop on Amplitude-Preserving Seismic Reflection Imaging at the Lufthansa Training Center in Seeheim on 2-5 February 1997. 

For more than 20 years, true-amplitude reflections have been understood to represent the elementary-wave reflections without the geometrical spreading effect. The term is, however, often also used to refer to the originally recorded field amplitudes that have not been subjected to any processing. I prefer and use the first definition. It is a most desirable aim to have primary P-P reflections along the searched-for reflectors in the depth or time domain (say, within a target area of interest) represented in their true-amplitude form. As such, true-amplitude reflections, also subjected to a pulse stretch, can be looked upon as an intermediate step in constructing angle-dependent interface reflection-coefficients. These can, in a follow-up step, be inverted to find the searched-for physical medium parameters above and below a selected target reflector. 

Most papers, particularly the more theoretical ones, presented in this volume result from the desire of their authors to establish physical medium parameters by a one-step migration/inversion procedure. The theory makes this possible. To achieve this "high goal" with little intermediate control is a very demanding task. In standard seismic processing and reflection imaging, in which amplitudes are in general not quantitatively made use of, one has, over many decades, in practice clearly developed a multi-step procedure which requires various intermediate quality controls. Short cuts, which theoretical considerations often permit, and where two or more boxes in the processing flow-chart are replaced by one, are dangerous and generally fail. 

Amplitude-preserving imaging or migration/inversion can ultimately also only be successful as a carefully controlled multi-step procedure involving rather more than less steps (i.e., boxes in the flow-chart) if compared with standard processing . If the construction of true-amplitude sections or accurate pseudo-sonic logs is the ultimate goal, there will be an increasing need to preserve and/or control amplitudes, when proceeding from one box in the flow-chart to the next. This is important in addition to choosing the correct elastic Green's functions, migration/inversion algorithm and corrections of the reflector overburden, in addition to accounting for absorption and thin-layering, etc.
