Conditions exist in the near-surface rocks in many of the areas explored by the reflection seismograph that profoundly influence the traveltimes of the deeper reflections. These conditions exist at depths considerably below the depths of present-day economic shothole drilling, and quite often a measure of these effects is a prerequisite to the correct reflection correlations. The salt problem of the Western Anadarko Basin is an example of this problem and several other areas are postulated as examples. Refinements in the reversed in-line refraction profiling technique are described which can be employed to solve these problems. The refinements are applicable to all reversed in-line refraction profiling.
