Lesson No. 33: The Two-Layer Reflection Time-Distance Curve
Published:January 01, 1959
In Figure 93, we repeat the section described in the discussion of the previous Lesson which pertains to Figure 90,
The transmission of the energy in wave form from shot-point 0 is represented by the rays emanating therefrom. Some of this energy is reflected at the first interface, S,'S1, back to the surface Ox.
One such typical path is shown as ORIP, for which the emergence angle is denoted by au. The time-distance curve corresponding to reflections from this interface may be parametrically represented by the equations

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.”
