A robust deconvolution function to study wave propagation. Low pass filtering and resampling the input signals to higher sampling rates may help to eliminate noise and improve pick peaking. An example MatLAB routine with actual input signals to replicate the plot shown here is included in zip file.

The input vector has to be nx1 instead of 1xn, otherwise running the last line shows matrix concatenation error

well-written routine with easy to follow example

Przemyslaw, I don't think your one star is fair. It is a working function, we used many times in our papers. You are basically saying that S should be a vector array instead of two columns.

matrix concatenation error, should be
S = [Stmp(L/2:L), Stmp(1:L/2-1)];
not S = [Stmp(L/2:L); Stmp(1:L/2-1)];
inside the function.

It works.
