Applications of plane-wave destruction filters

Sergey Fomel


Plane-wave destruction filters originate from a local plane-wave model for characterizing seismic data. These filters can be thought of as a $T$-$X$ analog of $F$-$X$ prediction-error filters and as an alternative to $T$-$X$ prediction-error filters. The filters are constructed with the help of an implicit finite-difference scheme for the local plane-wave equation. On several synthetic and real-data examples, I demonstrate that finite-difference plane-wave destruction filters perform well in applications such as fault detection, data interpolation, and noise attenuation.
