[Seisunix] VSP Processing

Erdi - from your image it looks like you are generating the synthetic 
data using a zero-phase wavelet but are then picking using a first-break 
approach (assuming that the arrow represents the pick on the 4th trace). 
I would suggest either picking on a peak using a threshold or modelling 
using a minimum phase wavelet. As Rob says, you could shift the data 
down with sushift but I suspect that the modelling has not created any 
data before T=0 so this might not work.

Another alternative would be to set a negative start time in the 
modelling if this is an option.
