Seismic interferometry is an effective tool to retrieve surface waves between two receiver stations by cross-correlating ambient background noise over sufficiently long recording times. This method assumes an azimuthally uniform distribution of noise sources. Unfortunately this assumption is not always fulfilled in practice. If noise sources are located on one side of a receiver array only, surface waves can also be retrieved by multi-dimensional deconvolution of passive records. We show how this method can effectively correct for azimuthal variations in the noise source distribution. We do not take backscattering of the surface waves into account, but this can be overcome if wavefield decomposition is incorporated.
