By minimizing the difference between synthetic and field data sets, full waveform inversion (FWI) can produce high resolution and high fidelity earth model parameters that are not resolvable by commonly used ray-based tomography. In this paper, we share our experience on applying 3-D acoustic time-domain full waveform inversion to an OBC data set collected over Valhall field in North Sea.
