We use the simulated plane wave section method to separate specular reflections and diffraction events. We show that plane wave sections naturally separate specular and diffracted events and allow us to use plane-wave distruction filters to suppress specular events resulting in plane-wave sections of diffractions. A synthetic example demonstrates the effectiveness of our method in imaging faults and small-scale discontinuities.
