Ray tracing in the smoothed acoustic SEG/EAGE Salt Model. Part 1: Seismograms

Vaclav Bucha


Two-point rays of refracted and reflected P-waves in the smoothed acoustic SEG/EAGE Salt Model are computed. The shot-receiver configuration is derived from the original SEG/EAGE Phase A Acquisition. The square of 21x21 receivers and three shots are used to compute rays. One profile is used to generate the ray-theory seismograms. The calculations demonstrate that the smoothed SEG/EAGE Salt Model is suitable for two-point ray tracing.
