A new approach for three component seismic array processing

O. K. Kedrov, V. E. Permyakova


The new concept and methodology of regional seismic arrays (RSA) equipped by three component (3 C) sensors (Z, NS, EH9, are proposed. Such system could be more perfect tool of Earth interior investigations. This aim can be achieved by introduction of polarization filtering of 3 C seismic vibrations as an effective means of noise suppression and robust detection and identification of secondary body phases of the signals. The proposed algorithm is based on: 1) linear phase band pass frequency filtering of N 3 C records in M bands; 2) polarization filtering of all 3 C records in all L directions where array beams are routinely oriented; 3) calculation of L beams in M bands using polarized P, SV and SH traces of individual sensors; 4) detection of signals on the L*M P, SV and SH traces; 5) location of the event. The main new procedures are 2) and 3). Due to these new approaches the procedures 4) and 5) will be improved in comparison with,those routinely used today at RSA's. This work includes the theoretical consideration of proposed method efficiency and preliminary experimental results.
