Singular Spectrum Analysis-Based Time Domain Frequency Filtering

  • R. K. Tiwari
  • R. Rekapalli


The SVD-based time and frequency domain Eigen image and Cadzow filters were compared and discussed in the previous chapter for random noise attenuation based on coherency of signal. The time domain frequency filtering of seismic traces using Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA) method, a data adaptive time domain filtering mechanism, is presented in this chapter.
