Hans Tieman spoke to the Stanford Exploration Project on Jan 23, 1996 about depth imaging with slant slacks. Among his techniques is a clever method of converting slant stacks of midpoint gathers into equivalent slant stacks of source gathers. A source gather best represents a physical experiment that can be modeled easily by wave-equation methods. Midpoint gathers, however, better include the coherence of steep reflections and better avoid aliasing. A conversion takes advantage of the best of both domains.
