ABSTRACT

Stacking is an efficient approach to increase signal‐to‐noise ratio, which is a key issue in seismic data processing. The time–frequency domain‐ phase weighted stack (tf‐PWS) that uses coherency of instantaneous phase as a weighting function can significantly improve the stacked signal quality of many datasets. A graphics processing unit implementation was developed to reduce the heavy computational cost of tf‐PWS. Synthetic tests suggest the speed‐up factor is up to 20. Our real‐data test shows that the convergence of noise cross‐correlation functions can be substantially improved by tf‐PWS without a computational cost increase.
