Abstract

In geophysics, signals come with noise. It is desirable to minimize the effect of this noise. If we knew the probabilities of different values of signal and noise, we could use statistical filtering techniques. In geophysics, however, we rarely know the exact values of these probabilities; instead, we have to rely on the expertise and intuition of experts. We show how fuzzy techniques can transform this expertise into precise de-noising methods, we explain that the resulting methods indeed satisfy several natural requirements, and that these methods are in good accordance with heuristic techniques successfully used by geophysicists.
