Estimation of frequency with high resolution is a crucial task in signal processing. Raw seismic signals consist of huge noise which can be removed only by using some signal processing methods. In this paper, the ESPRIT algorithm is implemented in order to process the signal. A time series data is taken and the frequency is estimated by total least squares version of ESPRIT algorithm. ESPRIT employs a basic rotational invariance in the subspaces of the signal. The detailed implementation of the algorithm is greatly presented in the following sections.
