Lesson No. 15: Plotting Reflection Points on Dipping Reflecting Horizons
Published:January 01, 1959
At the end of the preceding lesson it was mentioned that we shall continue the subject under discussion by using Ex. 57 as a numerical case.
The following facts can be ascertained for the solution of that problem. The travel-time of the reflection to PI is 1.778 sec, and to P2 it is 1.592 sec. At PI we have Δt/Δx=0.062/1,000, and at P2 we have Δt/Δx=0.029/1,000. The corresponding angles of emergence are:

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.”
