Seismic time-lapse image registration using amplitude-adjusted plane-wave destruction

Mason Phillips and Sergey Fomel


We propose a method to efficiently measure time shifts and scaling functions between seismic images using amplitude-adjusted plane-wave destruction filters. Plane-wave destruction can efficiently measure shifts of less than a few samples, making this algorithm particularly effective for detecting small shifts. Separating shifts and scales allows shifting functions to be measured more accurately. When shifts are large, amplitude-adjusted plane-wave destruction can also be used to refine shift estimates obtained by other methods. The effectiveness of this algorithm in predicting shifting and scaling functions is demonstrated by applying it to a synthetic trace and a time-lapse field data example from the Cranfield CO$_2$ sequestration project.
