Data driven Velocity Model Building (VMB) based on Full Waveform Inversion requires very broad band, especially low frequnecy data content to overcome the cycle skipping problem. In this paper we demonstrate how the Joint Migration Inversion method introduced by the DELHPI consortium group applied in a cascaded workflow to preduce a hich quality velocity model to start and reduce efforts in Full Waveform Inversion.
