Sources of error and approximate magnitudes of errors are summarized, and the disturbing and misleading effects of impulses transmitted down the well geophone cable are discussed in detail. Several examples of the latter phenomenon in California are shown, and analyses are made indicating the probable path the energy travels from shot to the cable, and thence down the cable to the geophone. Suggested refinements to overcome this trouble are presented.
