Using the VSP deconvolution method described by Haldorsen et al (2004), the bandwidth of
the processed data is determined only by the signal-to-noise ratio at each frequency. With the
source signature determined from measurement in a very quiet wellbore, the bandwidth of the
deconvolved data extends well beyond the bandwidth of the nominal sweep. We see that this
applies also for a walk-away VSP.
