"The 3C-2D seismic datasets were acquired in 2008 in the Spring Coulee Field, Alberta, which is located in Township 4, Range 23, and west of the 4th Meridian in the Alberta Basin. Line 2008-SC-01 was reprocessed to obtain better image of the formation targeted at between 1300 ms and 1400 ms. The depositional settings of the Madison Formation consist of shallow and carbonate shelf deposits. The processing workflow was designed by testing several methods, algorithms, and parameters, and finding the optimal processing solution. The processing steps included elevation statics, noise suppression, deconvolution operator, and 2D Kirchhoff poststack time migration. In order to obtain the high quality seismic section, noise suppressing is important for this study because data include high ground rolls and air blast noises. Therefore, the recorded effects of ground roll and air blast were suppressed using suppress module, F-K, and bandpass filters. The final seismic section provides a high quality imaging of the subsurface. Combining the results of the reprocessed seismic data with well data from the same area allows for seismic interpretation and hydrocarbon exploration"--Abstract, page iii.
