Shearwater’s Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) uses the latest technology in building high-resolution Earth models for seismic imaging and interpretation.

FWI is an iterative tomographic technique, driven directly by differences between the true seismic data and synthetic data modelled with the estimated Earth model. All modelling is performed using accurate solution of the two-way wave equation, leading to much greater resolution in the inverted model than can be achieved through conventional ray-based tomographic methods.

Shearwater’s FWI is fully integrated within the Reveal platform, enabling easy incorporation of inversion into larger model-building workflows, for QC and for generation of intermediate Imaging products as the inversion progresses.
