In this note, we prove a mathematical theorem for the direct estimation of the source spectra of earthquakes using a single seismogram. Considering a combination of Fourier spectra, the effects of the “source term” and the “attenuation term” from a single seismogram can be separated. Using signal-processing techniques, such an approach may be expressed in terms of the estimation of the Wigner distribution.
