The previous paragraph derived the kinematic behavior of the shot continuation operator, but not its amplitude properties.

As a first amplitude approximation I chose an operator amplitude proportional to the local operator curvature. It should be possible to improve the amplitude accuracy by applying approaches similar to recent investigations into amplitude properties of the offset continuation and dip moveout operator Black et al. (1992).
