A long-term goal of the seismic industry has been to extend the spatial and temporal bandwidth of seismic data and thereby to improve the resolution of the resulting seismic image. In this paper we consider the limitations of systems used to acquire and process marine seismic data, in particular the effect of spatial arrays, and consider some techniques that might extend the bandwidth beyond that which is typically achieved.
