Inversion of converted wave data can improve subsurface imaging by improving the quality of the shear impedance result. But the best results come from simultaneously inverting the P-wave and converted wave data together. The RockMC optional add-on to RockTrace gives you this capability, whether the data is collected onshore or with ocean bottom cables.
Since RockTrace uses the full KZ, it supports the seismic inversion of P-P wave data and, with the optional P-S add-on module, P-S converted wave data, or a combination of both.
RockMC also provides additional tools for wavelet estimation so that a proper P-S reflection series is derived from the well log data for P-S wavelet estimation. In this way, multiple angle stacks from the P-wave data and Multiple angle stacks from the P-S data (and their associated wavelets) can all be put into the RockMC simultaneous inversion, yielding superior estimates of P- and S-impedance for rock property characterization.
