We combine neural network and syntactic pattern recognition, and propose a tree automaton system for the recognition of structural seismic patterns in a seismogram. Multilayer perceptron of the neural network is used for the identification of subpatterns, then a tree representation of the structural seismic pattern is constructed. We use three kinds of modified bottom-up structure preserved error correcting tree automata to recognize the tree representation of syntactic pattern, and propose a new top-down error correcting tree automaton to recognize non-structural preserved seismic pattern. In the experiments, the system is applied to the simulated and the real seismic bright spot patterns. The recognition result can improve seismic interpretation.
