Regular sampling along the time axis is a common approach for seismic imaging. However, seismic data are often spatially undersampled due to economical reasons as well as ground surface limitations. Operational conditions might result in noisy traces or even gaps in coverage and irregular sampling which often leads to image artifacts. Seismic trace interpolation aims to interpolate missing traces in an otherwise regularly sampled seismic data to a complete regular grid. In this talk, we explain some techniques, with low computational complexity, that can be used to improve the results. In particular, we talk about weighting, switching to midpoint-offset domain from frequency-space domain, and uniform versus jittered undersampling. We illustrate the advantages of these modifications using a real seismic line from the Gulf of Suez.
