Wave equation migration can be significantly sped up by making depth steps a function of frequency and velocity while the offset domain can be reduced as we go down in depth. Wave equation migration can be sped up by a factor of three, and acceptable migration gathers for velocity analysis can be generated five times quicker than conventional migration methods.

I would like to thank Ecopetrol for the data used in this paper.
