Variance-based salt body reconstruction

Download to read offline

Slides for my talk at EAGE 2017 in Paris, France. We introduce a technique which identifies corrupted areas in the updates of full-waveform inversions. These areas are then corrected to mitigate cycle-skipping artifacts and thus inversion converges to a more realistic model of the subsurface.
