Projection filtering has been used for many years in seismic processing as a tool to extract a signal out of noisy data. The effectiveness of projection filtering reaches a limit when seismic events are affected by static shifts. Such shifts degrade the lateral coherency of the data, which is the strongest assumption made by projection filtering. We propose an algorithm to estimate projection filters and static shifts simultaneously in order to perform noise attenuation in the presence of static shifts in the data. We then show results on synthetic and real data to demonstrate the denoising capabilities of our algorithm.
