Ray tracing in the smoothed acoustic SEG/EAGE Salt Model. Part 2: Maps of reflections

Vaclav Bucha


Two-point rays of the P-wave reflected from the flat bottom interface in the smoothed acoustic SEG/EAGE Salt Model are calculated. The shot-receiver configurations are derived from the original SEG/EAGE Phase A Acquisition. Reflection points are used for generating reflection maps, colour coded according to amplitudes. The illumination of the large shadow area below the trunk of the salt body is discussed.
