Interbed Multiple Elimination (IME)

Predicts all orders of multiples related to a single multiple generator

IME is a layer related data-driven 2D and 3D interbed multiple model prediction and subtraction method based on a methodology extended from SRME (Jacubowicz, 1998). 

IME utilizes a layer based, data driven algorithm to predict and model all internal multiples deriving from a given multiple generating horizon. The modeled multiples are passed into an adaptive subtraction algorithm for final subtraction from the data.

A variety of advanced adaptive subtraction algorithms are available, including least squares multidomain and curvelet subtraction, to subtract the predicted multiple model from the input dataset.
