Compared to traditional reverse-time migration (RTM), least-squares RTM (LS_RTM) is able to obtain true amplitude images as solutions of $\ell_2$-norm minimization problems by fitting the synthetic and observed reflection data. The shortcoming is that solutions of these $\ell_2$ problems tend to be overfitted and computationally too expensive. By working with randomized subsets of data only, the computational costs of LS-RTM can be brought down to an acceptable level, producing artifact-free high-resolution images. By including on-the-fly source-time function estimation into the method of Linearized Bregman (LB), we tackle the open issues of these "compressive imaging" in the aspects of algorithmic complexity of solver, guaranteed convergence and source estimation. We also inbvestigate whether the algorithm can be accelerated when we combine LB with the Nesterov method. Application of our algorithm on a 2D synthetic shows that we are able to get high-resolution images, with accurate estimates of the wavelet, for one single data pass.
