A comparison of the sparseness (simplicity) norm criterion blind deconvolution methods of Cabrelli and Wiggins is made in order to ascertain relative performance for underwater acoustic transient source signal estimation, especially in the presence of noise. Both methods perform well at high signal-to-noise ratios, producing source estimates that are significant improvements over the original received signal for classification purposes. At moderate and lower SNRs, the Cabrelli method tends to generate results that are superior to the Wiggins method. This is especially true for a damped sinusoid transient source, for which the Wiggins method fails completely at lower SNRs, while the Cabrelli method can still produce good source estimates.
