In this webinar, a marine seismic method that makes use of continuous wavefields on both the source and receiver side is explained. On the receiver side, data from typically one sail line is recorded continuously and treated as one long record in processing. The method treats source wavefields that can be emitted continuously over the length of the sail line while moving. The method will be explained and demonstrated with synthetic and real data examples acquired with densely triggered single air-guns. The method significantly reduces sound pressure and exposure levels compared to acquisition with standard sized air-gun arrays. Multiple sources distributed in the cross-line direction can be treated effectively. Thereby, cross-line source sampling of towed streamer data can be improved and acquisition efficiency increased.

Participants' Profile

This webinar is for anybody with an interest in marine seismic data acquisition and/or the reduction of its environmental imprint.
