Discrimination on the basis of apparent velocity (or normal moveout). Coherent arrivals with certain apparent velocities are attenuated. Also called apparent velocity filter, fan filter, dip filter, 'f-k' filter, and pie-slice filter. See Figure F-11. Velocity filtering is different from discrimination based on stacking velocity as accomplished in common-midpoint stacking.
