Microlocal analysis of imaging operators for effective common offset seismic reconstruction

Grathwohl, Christine; Kunstmann, Peer; Rieder, Andreas; Quinto, Eric Todd

The elliptic Radon transform (eRT) integrates functions over ellipses
in 2D and ellipsoids of revolution in 3D. It thus serves as a model for linearized
seismic imaging under the common offset scanning geometry where sources and
receivers are offset by a constant vector. As an inversion formula of eRT is unknown
we propose certain imaging operators (generalized backprojection operators)
which allow to reconstruct some singularities of the searched-for function
from seismic measurements. We calculate and analyze the top order symbols of
these imaging operators as pseudo-differential operators to understand how they
map, emphasize or de-emphasize singularities. We use this information to develop
local reconstruction operators that reconstruct relatively independently of depth
and offset. Numerical examples illustrate the theoretical findings.
