A technique is described for elimination of ghost reflections on magnetically recorded seismograph records by means of a linear filter. The application of this filter does not alter the character of primary reflections although eliminating the ghost reflections. The principal assumption made in the development of the technique is that the effect of AGC in altering the amplitude ratio of primary and ghost reflections is uniform for all record time.

A realization of the required filter is given and a measurement technique is outlined for detecting the existence of ghost reflections based on the autocorrelation function of the seismograph trace.
