An algorithm is derived for multichannel time-series data processing, which maintains specified initial multiple filter constraints for known signal or noise sources while simultaneously adapting the filter to minimize the effect of the unknown noise field. Problems of implementing the technique such as convergence, determination of a starting filter, and comparison of results with conventional filters are discussed and illustrated with data from a vertical seismic array.The procedure is shown to be stable and obtains approximately 3-4 db gain in S/N improvement over conventional Wiener filtering in the band 1 to 3 hz.
