Simultaneous source shooting or blended acquisition, which allows a temporal overlap between shot records, has been proposed as a method for substantially reducing the acquisition cost and improving data quality (e.g., denser shooting/efficient wide-azimuth shooting). Deblending allowed by traditional processing steps is still the dominant way of dealing with blended data. However, most of the deblending algorithms only utilize the blended input data without aliasing. In addition, it will be more challenging if the aliasing blended data traces are irregularly sampled, resulting in the failure of some deblending algorithms. In this paper we investigated the interpolation problem of irregularly blended seismic data using the focal transformation. Synthetic data example demonstrates the validity of its application for joint deblending and interpolation of the irregularly blended data.
