By J. K. Costain,C. Coruh

the cloth during this quantity offers the elemental thought essential to comprehend the foundations at the back of imaging the subsurface of the Earth utilizing mirrored image and refraction seismology. For mirrored image seismology, the top product is a "record part" from a set of "wiggly lines" which are recorded within the box from which information regarding the houses of subsurface constitution and rock may be derived. For the main half, the rules of imaging are an analogous whatever the intensity to the objective; an analogous mathematical history is critical for concentrating on a shallow water desk as for investigating the bottom of the earth's continental "crust" at a intensity of 30-50 km.
