In this work, we adopt the Stolt operator to design a robust and fast Apex Shifted Hyperbolic Radon Transform (ASHRT) that we can use to eliminate source interferences in blended sources acquisition. The problem of estimating the interference free data is posed as an inversion problem that utilizes an L1 misfit function that is not susceptible to erratic noise in the data such as blending interferences. Synthetic and real data examples show that Stolt based ASHRT can be used to eliminate interference noise efficiently.
