Ideally, traditional vibroseis processing produces a band-limited zero-phase Klauder wavelet through cross-correlation of the sweep with the recorded signal. An alternative wavelet processing method involves deconvolving the sweep from the recorded vibroseis trace. This deconvolution can be achieved through frequency-domain division. We compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of sweep deconvolution versus cross-correlation on synthetic and real data.
