The method of stack-power maximization can yield better stack compared to the method of traveltime decomposition in areas with poor signal-to-noise ratio. Figure 3.3-44 shows a CMP-stacked section along a land profile with field statics corrections applied (Figure 3.3-45). While the left-half of the section has a good signal-to-noise ratio, the right-half has a poor signal-to-noise ratio resulting from irregular topography and near-surface complexity (Figure 3.3-45). Note, for instance, the loss of continuity along the reflection events at 0.8 and 1.3 s at the right-half of the section.

Selected CMP gathers shown in Figure 3.3-46 verify the presence of short-wavelength statics. Following residual statics corrections by stack-power maximization and the subsequent velocity analysis, the same gathers indicate that short-wavelength statics have been largely resolved (Figure 3.3-46), and thus, the resulting CMP stack shows significant improvement in the continuity of reflections in the right-hand side (Figure 3.3-47). The shot and receiver residual static shifts derived by using the supertrace scheme described above are shown in Figure 3.3-48. Note that mainly large residuals are in the right-half of the profile with irregular topography.
