The theory of data-driven true amplitude migration is presented for multicomponent marine seismic data. The Marchenko scheme is adapted to account for the ghost, free surface and internal multiple effects and works without the need to know the source wavelet. A true amplitude image is formed from the obtained focusing functions without ghost effects and artefacts from free surface and internal multiples. The resulting reflectivity at image times can be input for a final step of full waveform inversion. The numerical example shows the effectiveness of the method in a simple 1D problem.
