Unformatted text preview: Normal move out (NMO) correction reflection hyperbolae become fatter with depth (i.e. velocity) 1 2 2 2 V x T T x + = The reflection traveltime equation predicts a hyperbolic shape to reflections in a CMP gather. The hyperbolae become fatter/flatter with increasing velocity 2 1 2 2 V T x T NMO We want to subtract the NMO correction from the common depth point gather But for that we need velocity...
