Impulse response

Figure  presents the summation surfaces [equation (1)] for an impulse response at a depth of 500 m, a P-velocity of 3000 m/s, an S-velocity of 1500 m/s, and an in-line offset of 3000 m. The left panel shows the single-mode PP summation surface, and the right panel shows the converted-mode PS summation surface. Similarly, Figure  shows the spreading surfaces; that is, the theoretical solution for depth of equation (1), Appendix A shows the calculations. The left panel presents the single-mode PP spreading surface, the center panel shows the converted-mode PS spreading surface, and the right panel compares the contour lines for both spreading surfaces.

Figure  shows the common-azimuth impulse response for a constant P-velocity of 2500 m/s, and a constant S-velocity of 1250 m/s, and an in-line offset of 200 m. The left panel exhibits the response for the single-mode PP common-azimuth migration operator, and the right panel exhibits the response for the converted-mode PS migration operator.
