Inverting a demigration operator is generally referred in the literature as least-squares migration (LSM) as historically a least-squares cost function has been used for this purpose. In practice any other cost function could be used, for examples if
solver='pylops.optimization.sparsity.FISTA'a sparse representation of reflectivity is produced as result of the inversion.
This routines provides users with a easy-to-use, out-of-the-box least-squares migration application that currently implements:
Kirchhoff LSM: this problem is parametrized in terms of reflectivity (i.e., vertical derivative of the acoustic impedance - or velocity in case of constant density). Currently, a ray-based modelling engine is used for this case (see
Born LSM: this problem is parametrized in terms of squared slowness perturbation (in the constant density case) and it is solved using an acoustic two-way eave equation modelling engine (see
The following table shows the current status of the LSM application:
Finally, it is worth noting that for both cases the first iteration of an iterative scheme aimed at inverting the demigration operator is a simple a projection of the recorded data into the model domain. An approximate (band-limited) image of the subsurface is therefore created. This process is referred to in the literature as migration.
