The net result is that seismic processing simply cannot be done with conventionally recorded data unless one is willing to make traveling-wave assumptions. However, no traveling-wave assumption has to be made if a dual sensor (that is, both a geophone and a hydrophone) is used as the receiver. A dual sensor provides both the hydrophone signal and the geophone signal (Canales and Bell, 1996[1]). Let us give an example (Figure 19). The geophone and hydrophone signals are out of phase. As a result, it can be concluded that the event is a traveling upgoing wave. On the other hand, if the geophone and hydrophone signals were in phase, the event would be a traveling downgoing wave.
