Abstract:Advances in computational capabilities as well as ongoing improvements in storage strategies have made reverse time migration (RTM) a feasible method for capturing images of complex structures. However, large storage requirements still restrict RTM applications, especially in anisotropic media. Utilising a first-order quasi-P-wave equation in vertically transversely isotropic (VTI) media, we investigate anisotropy and deduce an RTM equation for a staggered-grid high-order finite difference (FD) scheme incorporating a perfectly matched layer (PML) boundary in this study. We also develop an improved source wavefield storage strategy via a PML boundary method for VTI medium RTM using graphic processing unit (GPU) accelerated computation. Our proposed method significantly reduces the total volume of data storage required for conventional RTM while increasing calculation time by just a small amount. Checkpoints can be set based on GPU memory size, leading to the generation of high precision and high efficiency subsurface images. We carried out a series of numerical tests on simple anisotropic media and complex Hess 2D VTI models to verify the effectiveness of our proposed method.
