Received (Day Month Year) Revised (Day Month Year) Communicated by (xxxxxxxxxx) We present a preliminary investigation of compression of segmented 3D seismic volumes for the rendering purposes. Promising results are obtained on the base of 3D discrete cosine transforms followed by the SPIHT coding scheme. An accelerated version of the algorithm combines 1D… (More)
We present results of the application of the wavelet transform method to seismic imaging. The objective of this research is to develop 3D seismic Kirchhoff imaging in the wavelet-transform domain, making use of the time-frequency property of wavelets. We propose to migrate the wavelets as units rather than single samples as in conventional Kirchhoff… (More)
We developed fast wavelet based algorithm for 3D Kirchhoff imaging leaning upon the time-frequency localization property of mathematical wavelets. Our approach consists in the migration of the wavelet expansion coefficients rather than single samples as in conventional Kirchhoff migration implementation. Practically, the wavelet transform of each trace from… (More)
