    Velocity filtering seismic traces requires fulfilment of the sampling theorem in the time domain and in the space domain. Since the latter condition is seldom met in exploration seismics, a method based on τ-p transformation combined with time varying filtering is proposed for solving the problem of reducing dispersive ground-roll in a seismic trace. Although it is possible to mask out ground-roll in the τ-p domain, mapping of the τ-p domain back into the original x-t domain involves numerical difficulties because the used inverse discrete Radon transform is ill-posed. To circumvent this problem the seismic trace is applied to a time varying filter with a stop-band which at any instant corresponds to the instantaneous frequency of the ground-roll, thus reducing the ground-roll with minimum distortion of the wanted seismic rate
