A main target of seismic data processing is to remove the surface waves and improve the quality of seismic records. Here, we propose a Co-Core Trace (CCT) transform filtering based on the Trace transform from image processing and apply it to seismic surface wave attenuation. The CCT transform is designed according to the distribution and propagation of the surface waves. In the CCT transform domain, the energies of surface waves are significantly enhanced and could be filtered out with a relative threshold, while the reflection events are saved due to the conspicuous disparity. Experiments on both synthetic model and field data demonstrate that the proposed algorithm performs well both in surface wave attenuation and reflected signal preservation, besides presenting advantages over some conventional methods.
