SEG Workshop: Geophysical Compressed Sensing
Date 2-4 December 2015
Location Beijing, China

The SEG Geophysical Compressed Sensing Workshop focused on providing a better understanding of the concept and theory of compressed sensing from the geophysical perspective.


Compressed sensing is a newly developed mathematical theory and information technology, which breaks the long-standing pillar of Nyquist-Shannon sampling theory and the sampling frequency limitation and allows reconstructing the signal with fewer samples. The current applications of compressed sensing involve remote sensing, medical imaging, optical photography, communication and other engineering fields. The geophysical applications of compressed sensing have just begun, which involves efficient and economic geophysical acquisition, sparsification of geophysical data, seismic inversion and imaging, etc.

This workshop provided a collaboration platform for the research and production of geophysical exploration and the interdisciplinary studies between geophysical exploration and applied mathematics, presented the existing successful applications of compressed sensing in exploration geophysics, and discussed the future path of the new technology.

Technical Topics

  • Basic theory and mathematical models of CS
  • Sparsification of geophysical data
  • Efficient geophysical acquisition
  • CS-based geophysical data processing (including data regularization, noise attenuation, deconvolution, imaging, deblending and waveform inversion)
  • CS-related Geophysical inverse problems
