Abstract

High-resolution reflection surveys have been used in watercovered areas for some time, but only during the last decade has serious attention been paid to the development of survey techniques to give comparable results on land. These techniques are now becoming well established. This paper gives an outline of the principles of reflection seismology and of the particular problems that arise when the method is applied to depths of 200 m and less.
