Curvelet-based non-linear adaptive subtraction with sparseness constraints Herrmann, Felix J.; Moghaddam, Peyman P.


In this paper an overview is given on the application of directional basis functions, known under the name Curvelets/Contourlets, to various aspects of seismic processing and imaging, which involve adaptive subtraction. Key concepts in the approach are the use of (i) directional basis functions that localize in both domains (e.g. space and angle); (ii) non-linear estimation, which corresponds to localized muting on the coefficients, possibly supplemented by constrained optimization. We will discuss applications that include multiple, ground-roll removal and migration denoising.
