Advanced Digital Signal Processing of Seismic Data
Seismic data must be
interpreted using digital signal processing techniques in order to create accurate representations of petroleum reservoirs
and the interior structure of the Earth. This book provides an advanced overview of digital signal processing (DSP) and its
applications to exploration seismology using real-world examples. The book begins by introducing seismic theory, describing
how to identify seismic events in terms of signals and noise, and how to convert seismic data into the language of DSP. Deterministic
DSP is then covered, together with non-conventional sampling techniques. The final part covers statistical seismic signal
processing via Wiener optimum filtering, deconvolution, linear-prediction filtering and seismic wavelet processing. With over
sixty end-of-chapter exercises, seismic data sets and data processing MATLAB codes included, this is an ideal resource for
electrical engineering students unfamiliar with seismic data, and for Earth Scientists and petroleum professionals interested
in DSP techniques.
