Demand for broadband seismic data is rising. In this paper, we analyze the effect of the source and receiver ghosts on the wavelet, spectrum, and AVA. We also demonstrate how the bandwidth of conventional towed streamer data can be broadened with a bootstrap deghosting approach in the premigration stage. We use two conventional streamer examples from the Gulf of Mexico to show the benefits of bootstrap deghosting on restoring the bandwidth and reducing side lobes.
