An undersampled acquisition geometry and a limited recording aperture often produces migration noise (i.e., acquisition footprint) that blurs the subsurface re ectivity image. Here, we develop a prestack migration deconvolution (MD) filter that deblurs the migration image. The MD filter is applied to 3-D prestack SEG/EAGE salt data as well as 3-D marine data from Alaska. Results show that MD can provide noticeably better illumination and resolution than standard migration images.
