conclusions

I have shown the theory of source-receiver migration for multiple reflections, using the primaries as the source. The 2-D complex synthetic data test proves that multiples can be correctly imaged with the generalized source-receiver migration method and provide structural information of the subsurface. Using the original data instead of multiples as the receiver wavefield may add some noise, but the separation of the multiples from original data can be avoided. Since the source wavefield in multiple migration is not simple point source, it is a good numerical example for generalized source-receiver migration. The similar results of shot-profile migration and source-receiver migration of multiples numerically proves the equivalence between these two migration methods.
