This research compares the results of each method to solve problems caused by sand dunes, In the southwestern region of Libya, the Murzuq basin is covered with sand dunes, which are a significant source of noise in land seismic data, which caused issues in seismic processing, also sand dunes cause increases of travel time of reflected events in seismic data, procuring false structures this problem caused by residual static errors.
The presence of extensive sand dunes causes logistic and technical difficulties for seismic reflection prospecting, Due to the steep angle of repose of the sand dunes faces and the low seismic velocity within them, which causes significant time delay to the reflected waves.
In this research, three seismic lines (202, 207, 209), of total length 12 km, have been completely reprocessed at Western Geco processing center (Tripoli) using omega software. the methods of gain corrections: time function gain and geometric spreading. Spreading amplitude compensation, has been proceed the results will be compared to another method of gain corrections called residual amplitude analysis compensation (RAAC) which is has better results for static problems the conventional method of computing field statics has been implemented and the result is compared with elevation static. It is obtained by using uphole method (conventional method) yielded a significant improvement over the elevation method.
