We have developed a method for the spherical divergence correction of seismic reflection data based on normal moveout and stacking of cylindrical slant stacks. The method is illustrated on some Gulf of Mexico data. The results show that our method yields essentially the same traveltime information as does conventional processing. Our amplitudes, however, are more interpretable in terms of reflectivity than are those obtained by using an empirical spherical divergence correction.
