This paper discusses the use of wavelets for the preprocessing of data from seismic observation stations. The authors analyze the application of wavelets for seismic event data processing, discuss natural disasters prediction trends and make a decision about importance of performing additional seismic data analysis. We provide a new approach of seismic event preprocessing based on different methods combination and MATLAB usage. This approach can be used during educational process in the fields of digital data processing, wavelet analysis, natural disasters research and MATLAB study.
