We have developed a novel random noise attenuation method for seismic data based on inversion in the frequency-space (f-x) domain. The method regards ‘clean’ seismic data in f-x domain as model parameters, and the noise attenuation is equivalent to inverting these parameters from the noisy data. The prediction error filter (PEF) in the f-x prediction method is used as lateral continuity constraints of the inversion. Since the PEF is calculated from the noisy data, it should be recalculated from the denoised seismic data. The process of calculating signal, then getting a new PEF should be iterated a few times. The choice of trade-off parameters also influences the performance of this method. The proposed method overcame the problem of the generation of spurious events and reduction of the signal amplitudes in the conventional f-x prediction method. Tests on synthetic and field data examples demonstrated that, compared with f-x domain prediction, the proposed method has a better performance in noise attenuation and signal-preserving.
