DNOISE project adapts principles of compressive sensing to promote a ground-up formulation for seismic imaging where adverse subsampling-related artifacts are removed by intelligent simultaneous-acquisition design and recovery by transform-domain sparsity promotion. This research, in conjunction with our investigations in sparse recovery and time-harmonic Helmholtz solvers, aims to bring about fundamental breakthroughs in development and implementation of the next-generation of processing, imaging, and full-waveform inversion solutions.
