Compensation for seismic attenuation inherent to the dissipative and dispersive nature of the Earth remains a challenge in seismic imaging of complex media. In this E-Lecture, Maud Cavalca briefly reviews various deterministic approaches that tackle the problem, and focuses on a scheme that compensates for Q within depth domain inversion. She shows that this type of approach constitutes a viable and efficient alternative to ‘Q-migration’ techniques that attempt at compensating for Q during migration.
