Lesson No. 23: The Analytic Basis of the Elementary Refraction Problem
Published:January 01, 1959
At this stage in the development of the refraction problem, it seems advisable to discuss it from the analytic standpoint. In Lesson No. 19, some of this ground has been covered. Nonetheless, by setting up the analysis for the general two layer refraction problem (along direction of true dip) we shall be able not only to get the earlier results again but also to obtain others of value.
Suppose, then, we consider the situation illustrated in Figure 67, which is essentially the same as was used in Figure 65.

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.”
