OBN acquisition design

Acquisition design generally consists of building a realistic synthetic model of the targeted area, computing datasets in this model for different acquisition scenarios, and applying the seismic imaging workflow on different datasets. During WIND, we aim to study the optimal design of sparse areal OBN acquisition through the solving of an optimization process. We plan to use the theory of diffraction tomography to formulate the optimization problem and find the acquisition providing the best compromise between deployment effort, resolution and sampling.
