The registration of PP to PS images is an essential step of iterative model building of multicomponent data. Depending on the quality of the data and the accuracy of the initial model of the earth’s interior, this operation may or may not require identifying corresponding geological boundaries. We developed a method for PP to PS registration that operates directly on images defined in the depth domain. This method can use horizons (either manually or automatically interpreted) or perform this operation in a data driven (automated mode) without interpreter input using only PP and PS seismic images. The application to synthetic and real data demonstrates the value of this method.
