A direct (noniterative) method 15 presented Lo determine an acoustic layered medium from the seismogram due to a time-limited plane wave incident from the lower halfspace. It is shown that one side of the autocorrelation of the seismogram due to an impulsive source at depth is the seismogram due to an impulsive source on the surface. This transforms the problem to the acoustic reflections problem as solved by Kunetz. Both the deep source time function and the layering can be determined from a surface seismogram.
