Missing-trace interpolation aims to reconstruct regularly sampled wavefields from periodically sampled data with gaps caused by physical constraints. While transform-domain sparsity promotion has proven to be an effective tool to solve this recovery problem, current recovery techniques make no use of a priori information on the transform-domain coefficients. To overcome these vulnerabilities in solving the recovery problem for large-scale problems, we propose recovery by weighted one-norm minimization, which exploits correlations between locations of significant coefficients of different partitions, e.g., shot records, common-offset gathers, or frequency slices, of the acquired data. Moreover, in situations where no prior support estimate is available, we propose the WSPGL1 algorithm that outperforms standard $\ell_1$ minimization in finding sparse solutions to underdetermined linear systems of equations. Our algorithm is a modification of the SPGL1 algorithm and enjoys better sparse recovery performance at no additional computational cost. We illustrate the improved recovery using WSPGL1 for randomly subsampled seismic traces.
