Unformatted text preview: a further refined look at subsurface geometry can be achieved by performing a ‘brutestack’. Brutestack •  A ‘brutestack’ is performed by applying a normal move ­out correc(on to a selected group of CMPs •  Normal moveout (NMO) correc(on stretches each trace to mimic zero offset; reflectors are flaaened and mul(ples are undercorrected •  NMO equa(on assumes that : Tx2 = To2 + x2/v2rms Second Look at Subsurface: Brutestack 3/24/2006 Lindsay Lowe and Hunter Danque 38 Near Offset Gather vs Brutestack 3/24/2006 Lindsay Lowe and Hunter Danque 39 Stacking: Velocity Analysis •  Aqer CMP sor(ng, velocity analysis is performed in order to more accurately correct for normal moveout •  The velocity is different than the NMO, because it does not assume a constant velocity along the trace Velocity Analysis The result of velocity analysis is a two ­ dimensional velocity profile that changes with (me and offset.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
