    Remediation and restoration of sites contaminated by hazardous organic chemicals has become an increasingly critical problem as the dissolution and transport of these compounds by groundwater threatens many aquifers providing drinking water to populations worldwide. The characterization of these sites prior to remediation and the monitoring of the restoration progress rely on the processing of dat... View full abstract»

    This article reviews some key aspects of two important branches in unsupervised signal processing: blind deconvolution and blind source separation (BSS). It also gives an overview of their potential application in seismic processing, with an emphasis on seismic deconvolution. Finally, it presents illustrative results of the application, on both synthetic and real data, of a method for seismic deco... View full abstract»

    In measurements for seismic exploration, the sampling of sources and receivers is usually not adequate to perform subsequent processing and imaging algorithms. Therefore, reconstruction of the seismic data to obtain aliasing-free, dense, and regularly sampled data is an important preprocessing step. In most reconstruction algorithms, information about the subsurface can not be utilized, even if su... View full abstract»

  • Robust Estimation in Signal Processing: A Tutorial-Style Treatment of Fundamental Concepts

    The word robust has been used in many contexts in signal processing. Our treatment concerns statistical robustness, which deals with deviations from the distributional assumptions. Many problems encountered in engineering practice rely on the Gaussian distribution of the data, which in many situations is well justified. This enables a simple derivation of optimal estimators. Nominal optimality, ho... View full abstract»

    This article proposes to address, in a tutorial style, the benefits of using Open Computing Language [1] (OpenCL) as a quick way to allow programmers to express and exploit parallelism in signal processing algorithms, such as those used in error-correcting code systems. In particular, we will show how multiplatform kernels can be developed straightforwardly using OpenCL to perform computationally ... View full abstract»

    As Friedrich Nietzsche stated more than a century ago, “The most intelligible factor in language is not the word itself, but the tone, strength, modulation, tempo with which a sequence of words is spoken-in brief, the music behind the words, the passions behind the music, the person behind these passions: everything, in other words, that cannot be written” [1]. However, nonlinguistic... View full abstract»
