ACIM: Acoustic image formation and interpretation (completed)
This project combines image formation and interpreation in a cross-disciplinary approach. Two major applications are seismic data processing and sonar imaging.
The project integrates the common underlying physical principles for image formation into image analysis. This benefits both image formation, where iterative processing will be used to produce better images, and image analysis and interpretation, where the physics involved in image formation will be used in deriving better feature extraction and image classification methods.
The main goals of this project are:
To demonstrate the potential of integrated image formation/interpretation on sonar and seismic imaging.
To develop new, efficient and accurate iterative seismic imaging methods for the special case of salt tectonics.
To develop new sonar image analysis techniques in conjunction with refinement of enhancement techniques for sonar image feature extraction.
