|Launched from the Velocity Navigator, the EarthStudy 360® Processor performs interactive and cluster-based gather processing. The Processor produces high-resolution images from EarthStudy 360 directional and reflection angle gathers, extracts optimal structural information for tomographic model determination, and employs advanced analysis tools to detect and analyze fractures.|
From directional gathers, the EarthStudy 360 Processor creates specular and diffraction images: Specular images emphasize structure continuity, while diffraction images show small-scale discontinuities. Structural information, such as dip, azimuth and continuity, can be extracted from directional angle gathers.
From reflection gathers, it extracts full-azimuth angle domain residual moveouts, which indicate errors in the angle-dependent images. These residual moveouts are used to update the isotropic and/or anisotropic velocity models and point to the orientation of fractures
