The Marchenko method is capable to create virtual sources inside a medium that is only accessible from an openboundary. The resulting virtual data can be used to retrieve images free of artefacts caused by internal multiples. Conventionally, the Marchenko method retrieves a so-called focusing wavefield that focuses the data from the recording surface to a point inside the medium. Recently, it was suggested to modify the focusing condition such that the new focusing wavefield creates a virtual plane wave source inside the medium, instead of a virtual point source. The virtual plane wave data can be used to image an entire surface inside the medium in a single step rather than imaging individual points on the surface. Consequently, the imaging process is accelerated significantly. We provide an extension of plane wave Marchenko redatuming for elastodynamic waves and demonstrate its
performance numerically.
