The extended Euler deconvolution algorithm is shown to be a generalization and unification of 2-D Euler deconvolution and Werner deconvolution. After recasting the extended Euler algorithm in a way that suggests a natural generalization to three dimensions, we show that the 3-D extension can be realized using generalized Hilbert transforms. The resulting algorithm is both a generalization of extended Euler deconvolution to three dimensions and a 3-D extension of Werner deconvolution. At a practical level, the new algorithm helps stabilize the Euler algorithm by providing at each point three equations rather than one. We illustrate the algorithm by explicit calculation for the potential of a vertical magnetic dipole.
