Abstract

We propose an adaptive approach for the removal of internal multiples caused by an overburden using source-receiver Marchenko redatuming. Typically, a multi-dimensional deconvolution using the one-way Green’s functions is performed to achieve redatuming, after these functions have been retrieved by solving the coupled Marchenko equations. However, this processing step is sensitive to imperfections in the data and the acquisition geometry as well as computationally expensive. We propose an adaptive redatuming method that is less sensitive to such imperfections and as such should be beneficial when attempting source-receiver Marchenko redatuming with field data. We show this using 2D synthetic data from the Santos basin offshore Brazil. As an added bonus, it is also computationally less expensive. A disadvantage of the proposed method is that the obtained reflection response exists in the physical medium, causing some interactions with the overburden to remain.
