Migration velocity analysis for the two-way wave equation based on focusing extended migration images at zero subsurface offset are sensitive to the presence of multiples. Even after thorough multiple suppression, remnant multiple energy can lead to conflicting events that will focus at different velocities, one for the primary and another for the multiple. An automatic algorithm will produce a velocity in between these two. If the multiples are mainly caused by the presence of a water layer, a bias of the algorithm towards higher velocities may help. Here, an application of this approach to a marine data is presented and the result is compared to a well log.
