Seismic Data Interpretation using Digital Image Processing
Abdullatif A. Al-Shuhail, Saleh A. Al-Dossary, Wail A. Mousa
Bridging the gap between modern image processing practices by the scientific community at large and the world of geology and reflection seismology
This book covers the basics of seismic exploration, with a focus on image processing techniques as applied to seismic data. Discussions of theories, concepts, and algorithms are followed by synthetic and real data examples to provide the reader with a practical understanding of the image processing technique and to enable the reader to apply these techniques to seismic data. The book will also help readers interested in devising new algorithms, software and hardware for interpreting seismic data.
- Provides an easy to understand overview of popular seismic processing and interpretation techniques from the point of view of a digital signal processor.
- Presents image processing concepts that may be readily applied directly to seismic data.
- Includes ready-to-run MATLAB algorithms for most of the techniques presented.
The book includes essential research and teaching material for digital signal and image processing individuals interested in learning seismic data interpretation from the point of view of digital signal processing. It is an ideal resource for students, professors and working professionals who are interested in learning about the application of digital signal processing theory and algorithms to seismic data.
