To improve bandwidth and resolution in seismic data has been a priority since the early days of the seismic method. The last years the industry has made great strides forward in terms of providing techniques that contribute to enhanced seismic resolution, deeper penetration into the earth, more quantitative and reliable reservoir inversion, simplified interpretation and clearer facies discrimination. This presentation provides evidence for the improvements by case studies with recently acquired marine broadband data. It will also address a few R&D challenges.
