The efficient implementation of the Kirchhoff datuming algorithm on a
parallel computer makes wave equation datuming a feasible alternative to
conventional static shift.
In regions of large topographic relief, the subsurface velocity structure is
difficult to determine; therefore it may not always be possible to
continue the data to some lower datum directly.
With the fast and efficient wave equation datuming algorithm
presented here, it is possible
to estimate near surface velocity structure iteratively.
The datuming algorithm can also be used to
continue data upwards and perform wave equation based processing
at a flat datum.
