Abstract

Summary

Signal apparition offers a new perspective on sampling of seismic data. It can be used as a fundamentally different approach to decode data acquired in a simultaneous source mode. Results from the first field test using seabed recordings in the North Sea are presented and we find that by using signal apparition principles it is possible to obtain simultaneous source separation results with very low separation errors resulting in 4D-grade separated seismic data. Our finding will have significant implications on acquisition cost and efficiency gains.
