A34 DOCUMENTED APPLICATIONS OF S-WAVE DATA 1 Introduction For the past twenty-five years seismic shear wave data have been sparingly applied in the petroleum exploration and production industry. Early applications required direct sources of shear-wave energy and thus data acquisition was generally limited to land locations. Further concerns about receiver coupling also limited recording of mode-converted shear waves from conventional sources to land environments. In recent years multicomponent seismic data acquisition has been successfully extended into the marine environment through 3C and 4C sea-floor recording using conventional airgun sources. These data have been quite effectively recorded and processing capabilities are
