We show preliminary results of least-squares migration for both primaries and multiples. The result of applying this method to one portion of the synthetic SMAART data shows that, if we can design an accurate forward modeling algorithm, we can suppress the multiples' images and enhance the resolution of the primaries' images. Tests also indicate that success of this method is sensitive to the accuracy of the modeling operator.
