Abstract:

Some older Multichannel Seismic data recorded on the shallow continental shelf do not properly image the upper few 100 m. This is due to a large approx. 200 m minimum source receiver offset. Nonlinear Correlation, used successfully for other seismic processing was not able to correct the data. The use of a short Approx. 30 m minimum source receiver offset produces excellent seismic images of the upper sediments.
