Then, we record reflec(ons and refrac(ons caused by impedence differences between the earth’s layers The source wavelet and the earth’s response can be described as (me series, a series of variables that are recorded at discrete (me intervals. X(t) = w(t) * e(t) + n(t) n(t) = random noise w(t) = source wavelet 3/24/2006 e(t) = Earth response X(t) = recorded trace Lindsay Lowe and Hunter Danque 19 Deconvolu(on and the Convolu(onal Model X(t) = w(t) * e(t) + n(t) Removal of random noise through filtering and trace edi(ng X(t) = w(t) * e(t) 3/24/2006 Lindsay Lowe and Hunter Danque 20 Deconvolu(on and the Convolu(onal Model Obtaining the ‘earth response series’ is the goal of all seismic processing steps.
