Diversity Summing Option for a Three-Dimensional Field Recorder

A. S. Badger, David M. Wilson

The advances in electronics technology now make it feasible to offer diversity stack as an option in field summing hardware. In the past, many solutions to the problem of controlling noise in realtime compositing of seismic data were implemented. Specific techniques adapted to known types of noise interference were proven effective and reliable. However, the initial input of parameters and observer intervention to optimize performance make these operations vulnerable to human error.

With the complexity of three-dimensional data acquisition, it is necessary for the noise-control technique to be as completely independent of human input as possible and still offer results that optimize signal-to-noise ratio in the output sum.
