Seismic source wavelet estimation from the seismic data using borehole velocity and density information is one of the important steps in seismic data processing and is also very useful for inversion process to estimate the impedance changes for accurate mapping of natural oil and gas deposits. It is clear from the previous chapters that the noises are always present in seismic data. The presence of noises in seismic data deviate the wavelet estimates and thereby mislead the processing and interpretation.
