Deblending of simultaneous-source data is usually considered to be an underdetermined inverse problem, which can be solved by an iterative procedure, assuming additional constraints like sparsity and coherency. By exploiting the fact that seismic data are spatially band-limited, deblending of densely sampled sources can be carried out as a direct inversion process without imposing these constraints. We applied the method with numerically modeled data and it suppressed the crosstalk well, when the blended data consisted of responses to adjacent, densely sampled sources.
