Time-lapse seismic surveys are intended to measure changes in the subsurface related to reservoir production. Accurate estimation of the reservoir level requires corrections to layers above the reservoir, including the water layer. Water layer changes can be attributed to ocean tides and water velocity changes, which require offset- and depth-dependent timing corrections. These can be difficult to estimate in shallow water marine streamer data sets; thus, we developed a completely data-driven method that reduces timing differences and is effective in both shallow and deep water.
