Effective and efficient diffraction wavefield separation from recorded seismic reflection data is important for ultra-high-resolution seismic imaging of discontinuities and stratigraphic details. Here we demonstrate the results of an effective new methodology to separate diffractions from reflections and give examples on synthetic and real seismic data sets. We use the diffraction wavefield in pre-stack migration to obtain ultra-high-resolution seismic images.
