For prestack data, the forward modeling is an algorithm that extrapolates the wavefield upward from a flat surface to an irregular surface by the double-square-root (DSR) equation Claerbout (1984). Again, the modeling algorithm is derived so that it can be used with any depth extrapolation technique, including phase-shift, split-step Fourier, and finite-difference methods.
