White reflectivity is not a fundamental assumption either in the stationary or nonstationary convolutional model. However the deconvolution algorithms need to be modified slightly to honour color in the reflectivity series. This color correction is just possible when enough well-log information to build a mathematical model for the regional reflectivity is available. A method for correcting reflectivity color effects in frequency domain Wiener deconvolution is reviewed and extended to Gabor deconvolution.
