Conclusions

In this short note I derived three linear operators that transform a pegleg multiple into an event that is directly comparable to its primary. Snell Resampling normalizes multiples to primaries with respect to AVO response and attenuation. Differential geometric spreading accounts for the longer raypaths of multiples through the earth. Finally, I introduce a flow for computing and applying the reflection coefficient of the multiple-generating layer. These operators extend naturally to three dimensions.
