South Halfway 3D. An example of a challenging onshore acquisition and subsequent processing and a unique way of performing a pre-stack elastic inversion on a difficult dataset

The 3D survey, South Halfway was acquired in December 2019 in Wonowan, BC, Canada. The size of the survey is 94 km2 and covers a bog and river valley area. Over the bog area, the seismic is limited to 30 Hz and has a higher noise level. The seismic data quality is much improved in the river valley. This caused special challenges for the seismic data processing and pre-stack elastic inversion. We will be discussing these issues and how we solved them in this publication.
