Abstract

Summary

I will discuss an exemplary application of early-arrival FWI to near-surface data from a highly complex environment and the benefit of using the high-resolved FWI model for reflection imaging. To further assess the potential of the method I will summarize some of the experience from early-arrival FWI and derive scaling relationships that allow for constraining the required frequencies. I will discuss the limitations of acoustic FWI and some of the problems and solutions towards fully elastic FWI.
