The ultimate goal of the WIT Consortium is a most accurate and efficient target-oriented seismic modelling, imaging, and inversion using elastic and acoustic methods. Within this scientific context it is our aim to educate the next generations of exploration geophysicists.
Our business is leading-edge research for seismic exploration. With focus on multi parameter (CRS) stacking, seismic imaging, amplitude preserving migration, workflows for seismic data processing from time to depth, imaging of passive seismic sources and full waveform inversion. The goals on seismic resolution are constantly increasing which requires a complementary use of kinematic and wave equation based techniques in the processing work flow. At WIT we use a cascaded system of kinematic and full wave form model building and imaging techniques. Since our data and inversions are never perfect it is the challenge to find those techniques which produce the best images for erroneous velocities and faulty wave forms. Our research covers a broad field of aspects to support efficient and successful exploration.
