Lesson No. 32: Introduction of Parametric form of the Timedistance Reflection Curve
Published:January 01, 1959
Let Figure 90 represent the vertical section of the subsurface, with Ox being the line of pickup locations, so that, as usual, x represents the algebraic distance on the surface between the shot-point 0 and the typical pickup location P. The horizontal lines Ss'S: and S2'S2 represent the traces of two horizontal plane interfaces, the first of which forms the lower boundary of a medium of thickness, hl, in which the seismic velocity is Vl. Immediately below this medium is a second medium of thickness, h2, in which the velocity is V2 and which is bounded by the planes whose traces are S1's, and S2'S2.

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.”
