Paper Summary

The implementation and production application of fast Reverse Time Migration (RTM) algorithms, especially for Tilted Transverse Isotropic (TTI) medium, is critical if the seismic industry is to quickly and efficiently create superior images for the interpretation of steep-dips and sub-salt regions. This paper presents an overview of the application of our high performance GPU-RTM algorithms developed for TTI, VTI and isotropic media. This application allows us to speed up RTM migration for large projects in Narrow Azimuth (NAZ), Wide Azimuth (WAZ) and Multi-azimuth (MAZ) (e.g. orthogonal WAZ) surveys.
