Examines the steps involved in pre-processing seismic data, including gain recovery, de-multiplexing, re-sampling, assigning geometry, datum corrections, amplitude adjustments, trace editing, common midpoint gather and common offset gather. Addresses the practical considerations involved in selecting variables, establishing the processing order and reprocessing existing seismic lines.
