Simultaneous source technology can accelerate data acquisition and improve subsurface illumination. But those advantages are compromised due to dense interference. To address the intense interference in simultaneous source data, we have investigated a method based on a deep neural network. The designed architecture consists of convolutional and deconvolutional networks. The convolutional network can learn the local features of the training data set, and the deconvolutional network constructs the output using the extracted features to match the ground truth. Because the main computational cost results from the optimization of the network parameters, the trained network can separate simultaneous source data efficiently. Besides, with the given dithering code, we embed the trained network into an iterative framework that can further improve the deblending. A numerical test on synthetic data demonstrates that the iterative framework with the trained network can obtain comparable performance with high efficiency compared to the conventional method. Next, we test our method with two different trained networks (one is from a synthetic data set, and the other is from a field data set) on field data. The test results confirm the performance of our method.
