To test the accuracy of the PSPI operator, I used v1(z)=1500 m/s at y=0 m and v2(z)=2500 m/s at y=2560 m to simulate the response of v=2000 m/s at y=1280 m. Figure 4 shows these two impulse responses together. The impulse response with a wider aperture is from the PSPI, and the other is the response with v=2000 m/s. The bottom of the responses coincide very well, even with the velocity discrepancy. By increasing the velocity discrepancy, we get Figure 5, with v1(z)=1000 m/s and v2(z)=3000 m/s. The bottom of the responses are no longer coincident, and the discrepancy gets worse as the depth increases.
