Interpreting a post-stack seismic section is difficult due to the band-limited nature of the seismic data even post deconvolution. Deconvolution is a process that is universally applied to extend the bandwidth of seismic data. However, deconvolution falls short of this task as low and high frequencies of the deconvolved data are either still missing or contaminated by noise. In this paper we use the autoregressive extrapolation technique to recover these missing frequencies, using the high signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) portions of the spectrum of deconvolved data.
