MultiFocusing technology can dramatically improve the quality of seismic imaging especially in cases of low fold data, poor signal- to- noise ratio and sparse 3D acquisition. At the same time, local parameters of the observed wavefield in prestack seismic records are of great interest for many seismic applications such as signal enhancement, velocity model building, etc. We propose to employ the MultiFocusing idea to achieve this goal. A local common offset MultiFocusing approximation for travel time stacking surface description is used. It allows accurately approximate travel times of reflection events in the vicinity of arbitrary location and arbitrary offset. We present the implementation of two applications: a signal enhancement scheme and velocity model construction by prestack stereotomography. We will also demonstrate efficiency of the proposed applications.
