I implement a three-dimensional integral dip moveout processing algorithm for constant-velocity media that prevents operator aliasing. The study of amplitudes led me to choose Black's formulation as the most satisfactory in regard to three rules that assure the proper behavior of the DMO process. The method also corrects for spherical spreading.

Although the program has not been tested on real 3-D data, the results with synthetic data, especially regarding AVO restoration, are encouraging. The next step will consist of implementing the algorithm on the Connection Machine.
