U040 Wave Equation Simulation and Angle-domain Imaging for Acquisition Testing Velocity Analysis and More J.H. Higginbotham* (Wave Imaging Technology) & M.P. Brown (Wave Imaging Technology) SUMMARY 71 st EAGE Conference & Exhibition — Amsterdam The Netherlands 8 - 11 June 2009Introduction The rising cost of seismic acquisition and the proliferation of “exotic” geometries (wide azimuth ocean-bottom node 3D VSP) amplify the risk of making the wrong acquisition choices. The union of “full wave” computer simulation of 3D seismic surveys and prestack depth migration can greatly mitigate this risk. By reproducing the entire experiment as faithfully as possible given the best
