The concept of the wavelet is not new in the petroleum industry, and particularly in geophysics, but this term is used here with a different meaning. For a geophysicist the source signal used during seismic acquisition is often approximated by a wavelet form. The mathematical approach of Wavelet Transform (W.T) permits to go further in the exploitation of their interesting properties. In this article, we explain some possible uses in Seismic Interpretation.
