Ground Roll - what is it? To first order: Rayleigh (SV) wave. Dispersive, often high-amplitude In (t,x,y), ground roll = cone. Usually spatially aliased. In practice, “ground roll cone” muted.

Motivation for advanced separation techniques. Model-based signal/noise separation. Non-stationary (t,x) PEF. Least squares signal estimation. Real Data results. Talk Outline

Coherent Noise Separation - a “model-based” approach Noise Subtraction simple subtraction adaptive subtraction pattern-based subtraction “Signal Processing” step data = signal + noise Noise Modeling moveout-based frequency-based “Physics” step Wiener Optimal Estimation
