Title: Method of confirming seismic data interpretation

Abstract

An improved method of generating synthetic seismograms for use in determining the accuracy of hypothesized subterranean structures is disclosed. The method features defining hypothesized detector locations corresponding to real detector locations rather than interpolating from arbitrary detector locations generated by specifying of initial ray path angles as input data. The accuracy of the results is improved by elimination of interpolation.
