Improved methods of reflection seismic data processing for velocity estimation, imaging, and interpretation
Seismic images and the geologic information they provide contribute significantly to our understanding of the earth's subsurface. In this thesis, I focus on methods relevant for constructing and interpreting seismic images, including methods for velocity estimation, seismic imaging, and interpretation, which together address key aspects of reflection seismic data processing. Specifically, I propose improved methods for semblance-based normal-moveout velocity analysis, for seismic imaging by least-squares migration, and for the automatic extraction of geologic horizons. To compute a seismic image, ...
