We discuss attenuation of near-surface multiples on land seismic data using examples from a pilot test survey in Northern Kuwait. While the current combination of prediction and adaptive subtraction provides essential preparation of the data for subsequent processing steps, the review of current approximations and limitations points to directions for future developments linking characterization of the near surface (possibly using multiples as signal) and the attenuation of near-surface generated multiples.
