This work presents a new seismic imaging system for generating and extracting high-resolution information about subsurface angle dependent reflectivity, with simultaneous emphasis on both continuous structural surfaces and discontinuous objects, such as faults and small-scale fractures. The system enables full-azimuth, angle-dependent seismic imaging using reflection data recorded through seismic acquisition surveys, especially wide-azimuth and long offset data. Geometrical attributes, such as dip-azimuth and continuity of the local reflecting surfaces, can be automatically extracted directly from the full-azimuth angle gathers. Azimuthal anisotropy can be detected, leading to an accurate anisotropy model representation.
