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).
