Abstract

Previous FWI denoising techniques, such as source blending and stacking, are designed applied to the seismic traces. Hence no physical information is used to improve the fidelity of the reconstruction, even when a good initial model is available. Moreover, traditional source blending requires the existence of common source gathers, which might be missing from the data. In this talk, we incorporate the source blending idea into the penalty method, and extract the synthetic sources corresponding to the principle directions of the gradient update. By blending the sources, we can not only achieve an acceleration and storage efficiency of the penalty method, but also make the reconstruction more robust to the random noise. This method is applicable to any source receiver position but is more efficient if common source gathers are available.
