Seismic image matchingMS67

Numerous applications in seismic image analysis require matching two or more images. Examples include time-lapse and multicomponent image registration, migration deconvolution, full waveform inversion, adaptive subtraction of multiples, etc. Some applications benefit from separating the matching procedure into components, such as scaling, shifting, and smoothing. I review different techniques for seismic image matching and compare them using synthetic and field data examples.
