Using Seismic Data


Reading waves

  • Vibroseis units similar to this are common as sources in land reflection seismic surveys – They substitute for explosives –several are used together - radio controlled and synchronized

  • The inverse slope of the line starting at 0,0 will give the velocity of the direct wave.

  • The inverse slope of the straight line events shown will give the velocities of the refracted waves in the layers.


Equations for finding the thickness of the layers
