Interval velocity estimation is a central problem in reflection seismology (Claerbout, 1999). Without an estimate of seismic velocities, we would be unable to transform prestack seismic data into an interpretable image. Advanced velocity estimation techniques (Clapp, 2001; Biondi and Sava, 1999) have been developed to estimate interval velocity in complex geological environments, though the cost of these methods is often considerable.
