Time-domain bidirectional deconvolution methods show great promise for overcoming the minimum-phase assumption in blind deconvolution of signals containing a mixed-phase wavelet, such as seismic data. However, time-domain bidirectional methods usually suffer from slow convergence (Slalom method) or the starting model (Symmetric method). Claerbout proposed a logarithm Fourier-domain method to perform bidirectional deconvolution. In this paper, we test the new logarithm Fourier-domain method on both synthetic data and field data. The results demonstrate that the new method is more stable than previous methods and that it produces better results.
