P291 Illumination Near a Salt Flank Example–Effects of Model and Wave Type T. Kaschwich* (NORSAR) & J. Mispel (Statoil) SUMMARY For survey planning and for QC of amplitudes picked on selected target horizons illumination maps are a useful tool. The Simulated Migration Amplitude technique (SMA) is a ray-based Kirchhoff migration of synthetic data around seismic reflectors. In order to enhance illumination mapping for hydrocarbon exploration and reservoir imaging in complex subsurface structures we present the extension of the SMA to converted waves and in anisotropic media. We demonstrate the accuracy of this method for a synthetic 2.5D example. The calculated
