Abstract
Wavelet transform method found their origin as an analysis tool for examining scattering of seismic waves. In the last few years, they have proven useful and popular in many fields. Wavelet analysis can characterize temporal or spatial behavior of geophysical signals. They can filter, remove unwanted signals such as ground rolls, or enhance data; can be used to detect specific events; and can be used to compress data. Applications of wavelet transform methods to a variety of geophysical problems are briefly described from the mathematical point of view and illustrated by several examples.
