Seismic denoising is one of the key steps in seismic data processing and has been extensively studied by researchers. A well-denoised data set can help interpreters to be able to see “hidden” events, which are often buried by strong noise in raw data. Usually, conventional denoising methods consider reformulating the data into sparse representation by domain transform or dictionary learning. The idea is to get the noise reduced or removed from reconstructed data by performing complicated, but carefully done, operations to separate signal from noise in sparse data representations. Recently neural network-based processing has been proposed as a very efficient alterative to improve traditional seismic processing. However, neural network-based processing only considers one-to-one or pixel-to-pixel type errors and ignores the spatial pattern structure of the data which may lead to overfitting.  Here we propose a new structure-similarity-aware stacked denoising autoencoder network for seismic data noise attenuation.  In our implementation, we pay attention to noise corruption input and also consider missing data. We have successfully applied this new learning-based method to some of the most difficult data areas, where salt related noise is very different from sediment related noise, and where conventional denoising methods have underperformed. Both synthetic and real data examples are tested to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method for various types of noisy input.
