SMIwiz: An integrated toolbox for multidimensional seismic modelling and imaging

Published: 21 November 2023| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/tygszns27k.1


This paper contributes an open source software - SMIwiz, which integrates seismic modelling, reverse time migration (RTM), and full waveform inversion (FWI) into a unified computer implementation. SMIwiz has the machinery to do both 2D and 3D simulation in a consistent manner. The package features a number of computational recipes for efficient calculation of imaging condition and inversion gradient: a dynamic evolving computing box to limit the simulation cube and a well-designed wavefield reconstruction strategy to reduce the memory consumption when dealing with 3D problems. The modelling in SMIwiz runs independently: each shot corresponds to one processor in a bijective manner to maximize the scalability. A batchwise job scheduling strategy is designed to handle large 3D imaging tasks on computer with limited number of cores. The viability of SMIwiz is demonstrated by a number of applications on benchmark models.
