I showed, using a shot from a seismic 3D marine dataset acquired in a complex area, that including a damping factor in the imaging condition can improve the amplitude accuracy of the conventional shot-profile reverse-time migration imaging condition.

The damping factor can be related to reflector illumination, adding the damping factor where it is really needed. Thus a variable damping approach should better preserve the amplitudes than a constant damping approach.
