Seismic horizons are geologically significant surfaces that can be used for building geology structure and stratigraphy models. However, horizon tracking in 3D seismic data is a time-consuming and challenging problem. Relief human from the tedious seismic interpretation is one of the hot research topics. We proposed a novel automatically seismic horizon tracking method by using a deep convolutional neural network. We employ a state-of-art end-to-end semantic segmentation method to track the…

Multi-resolution neural networks for tracking seismic horizons from few training images

A projected loss-function for training convolutional networks with a multi-resolution structure, including variants of the U-net is proposed and labels are proposed as the convolution of a Gaussian kernel and the known horizon locations that indicate uncertainty in the labels.

Fully Reversible Neural Networks for Large-Scale 3D Seismic Horizon Tracking

A fully reversible network for horizon tracking that has a memory requirement that is independent of network depth, and which uses the saved memory to increase the input size of the data by order of magnitude such that the network can better learn from large structures in the data.

Seismic Facies Segmentation Using Ensemble of Convolutional Neural Networks

This paper proposes seismic facies segmentation using encoder-decoder architecture of CNNs, a class of deep learning algorithms used for images that is not limited to the current dataset and semantic segmentation models.

Seismic vibration signatures are strong criteria to recognize moving ground targets in unattended ground sensor (UGS) systems. However, it is a challenging task because of the complexity of seismic

Bidirectional recurrent neural networks for seismic event detection

A deep learning approach to event detection that is an alternative to the STA/LTA trigger is introduced, a bi-directional, long-short-term memory, neural network is trained solely on synthetic traces, and its real time applicability is proven with 600 traces processed in real time on a single processing unit.

Automatic classification of geologic units in seismic images using partially interpreted examples

The combination of a partial-loss function, a multi-resolution network that explicitly takes small and large-scale geological features into account, and new labeling strategies make neural networks a more practical tool for automatic seismic interpretation.
