Paper Summary

Compared to surface seismic, the increased complexity associated with seafloor seismic data (OBC) requires considerable attention to details if a noise-free and well imaged dataset is to be produced. Best quality control practices and the application of differential processing techniques both contribute to the generation of optimal imaging results. Well designed analyses are used to quickly identify inaccuracies in the coordinates and water depths assigned to the receivers and to derive accurate scalars for summing hydrophone and vertical motion phone data.
