Lesson No. 6: Analytic Treatment of Elementary Reflection Problem
Published:January 01, 1959
In the preceding lesson we paved the way for solving the general problem by a lengthy numerical example.
We are now in a position to look into this general problem. Let the depth of the horizontal reflecting plane RR be h below the surface SS. If 0 designates, as usual, the position of the shot-point on SS, the image of 0 in RR is the point 0', where 00' is perpendicular to RR and, in length, equal to 2h.
Let P be the position of any receiving point, i.e., of a pickup, at a distance x from 0, so that OP=x.

Lessons in Seismic Computing
“An elementary text and problem book containing 44 lessons in seismology arranged for selection or combination to cover the normal 36-week course, or for condensation into an 18-week course. The lessons begin without assuming more than secondary school mathematics. An elementary knowledge of calculus is desirable, though not required, for the last half of the book.”
