Lesson No. 8: Velocity Determination from Reflection Data
Published:January 01, 1959
We continue with the assumptions that we have used heretofore concerning reflection data, namely, that the reflecting bed is a horizontal plane, that the medium intervening between that plane and the horizontal plane of the earth is homogeneous and isotropic to seismic wave propagation, and that all necessary corrections to the data have been applied. We thus have resultant travel-times for the reflected waves which depend only on the distance of the pickups from the shot-point (regardless of azimuth of the pickup points, since the reflecting plane is assumed parallel to the plane of the earth).

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.”
