signature deconvolution

1. n. [Geophysics]
A step in seismic processing by which the signature of the seismic source in the seismic trace is changed to a known, shorter waveform by using knowledge of the source waveform. If the source waveform is known for each shot, then the process also minimizes variations between seismic records that result from changes in the source output.
