In this paper, we derived the tomographic operator for wave equation migration velocity analysis tools based on the two-way wave equation. Only two approximations were used to derive the tomographic operator. Then, we tested the operator using two synthetic velocity models: first with constant velocity, and second with a more complex model that includes a high velocity salt body. The operator seems to give satisfactory results in both physical and Fourier spaces.
