Paper Abstract

Certain image processing methods such as filter banks, wavelet packets, and multiresolution analysis have been extensively used for efficiently decomposing, de-noising, compressing and reconstructing images in recent years1. While these methods have been applied primarily in images, their usefulness for decomposing and de-noising sets of measured data has not been thoroughly established yet. This paper will explore the potential of the application of image processing methods in non-image data sets. It is shown that filter banks can be potentially used to process and de-noise seismic data sets successfully. The idea is to treat a seismogram like a "conventional" image and extract certain features in a similar fashion to traditional image processing techniques. In this particular paper, the usage and application of wavelet bases will be explored.
