Abstract

Compressive sensing (CS), a sampling paradigm that is changing how data is acquired and processed in many fields, has attracted tremendous attention in recent years. In exploration seismology, particularly in 3D seismic technology, there have been published work on the application of CS to seismic data acquisition, processing and inversion. However, very little is known about the implications of CS in time-lapse (4D) seismic. Leveraging ideas from distributed CS where more than one signal is acquired and processed, as in 4D seismic, we present a joint recovery algorithm for time-lapse seismic data acquisition, imaging and inversion. The algorithm exploits the common information in the data sets (baseline and monitor) as part of an inversion procedure. Application of our algorithm to realistic synthetic examples highlight its advantages over other conventional approaches for processing time-lapse seismic data.
