Seismic Statistical and Deterministic Deconvolution Course

Seismic Statistical and Deterministic Deconvolution Course

Objective: The objective of the statistical and deterministic deconvolution short course is to familiarize exploration seismologists about the theory and practice of seismic deconvolution and zero-phase seismic processing. The prerequisite is a basic knowledge of vectors, matrices, and the Fourier transform. The course will consist of both lectures and in-class exercises.
