While least-squares Kirchhoff migration means doing more computations than in a conventional migration, the extra work serves two purposes - it compensates for the limited aperture of the migration, and it gives a migration velocity analysis cube as a by-product. Further work is neeeded to show whether these benefits justify the added cost, which is considerable.
