Illumination Studies

ACTeQ has partnered with Z-Terra to provide state of the art, rigorous wave equation modeling that underpins our Illumination Studies and Value of Information analysis.

Wave equation modeling in the space-frequency domain forms the basis for efficient computation of illumination cubes, which can be used to extract source illumination intensity along any given horizon in the depth model.

For some complex geologic settings, optimization of survey designs may require advanced wave equation modeling.

Preliminary modeling (either ray tracing or wave equation) is used to determine basic aperture and offset requirements at various azimuths across the target.

A number of designs can be generated, and a full illumination study can then be used to identify and validate the most efficient design to meet the imaging requirements of the project.
