|Abstract||Two-dimensional migration of seismic time sections by a digital computer has been performed by a variety of techniques, ranging from computer-simulated hand migration to a computer simulation of elastic wave propagation from the surface receiver positions back into the subsurface. Past processes have utilized the normal moveout equation, whereas the subject process is an application of its spatial derivative. Dip-domain migration pertains to special sections where all events have the same space-time slope, and the migration at each slope is approximated by a trivial function of the subsurface rms velocity and the associated vertical two-way traveltime. The actual process is to dip decompose a seismic section into so-called dip blocks through the applications of appropriate dip-discriminating coherency functions, migrate the individual dip blocks, and recompose the migrated dip components (dip blocks). The dip-discriminating coherency functions are computed from a combination of an algebraic and an absolute dipping spatial mix of the seismic time section. The input seismic data are not themselves spatially mixed on the dip blocks, but, rather, they are reduced in amplitude by the coherency functions for the dip blocks of which they are not a coherent component. Migration formulas are developed for both spatially invariant and variable subsurface velocity functions. The subject process has some computational advantages. In addition, improved signal-to-noise ratios are consistently obtained due to the dip bandpass (fan) filtering inherent to the process. Synthetic and field seismic examples are included. 14 figures.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
