  • Patent number: 9625600
    Abstract: Methods and systems for determining and removing swell noise from electric field data collected from streamers towed at different are disclosed. In one aspect, a first set of streamers called upper streamers is towed at a shallow depth, and the second set of streamers called lower streamers is towed below the upper streamers. Receivers located along the streamers measure surrounding electric fields and produce electric field signals. A proportionality parameter is calculated as a function of the electric field signals generated by vertically aligned receivers. The proportionality parameter can be used to calculate an approximate swell noise that is used to remove swell noise from electric field data measured by the receivers.
