In highly complex near surface structural regions, the use of traditional techniques of refraction statics and residual statics break down.

Seitel implements a surface consistent solution that is data driven and structurally robust.

The subsequently derived statics can also be used to improve initial depth migration shallow velocity models.


  • Effective at removing subtle or complex statics.
  • Run prior to residual statics.
  • Pre-5D interpolation / noise attenuation.
  • Improved velocity analysis.
  • Surface consistent.
