The previous analysis appears 1-dimensional in depth.
Conventional interval velocity estimation builds a velocity-depth model
independently at each lateral location.
Here, we have a logical path for combining measurements
from various lateral locations.
We can change the regularization
to something like
Instead of merely minimizing the vertical gradient of velocity,
we minimize its spatial gradient.
Luckily, we have preconditioning and the helix to speed the solution.
