Seismic imaging in hard rock environments
MetadataShow full item record
Seismic methods are capable to produce reliable images of subsurface structures. However, hard rock seismic is dealing with rather complex geology and the data sets often have a low signal to noise ratio. In this thesis new seismic imaging algorithms are developed and known techniques are adapted to address these problems and produce reasonable seismic images of the complex subsurface geology and mineral targets. The suggested algorithms demonstrated significant improvements in hard rock seismic imaging.
