Abstract

Experience has shown that Seismic Refraction Traverses can be grossly misinterpreted unless they are very carefully carried out. The Refraction Depth Probing technique developed by the Bureau is intended to measure accurately the distribution of refractors beneath any selected station. In the Bureau's method, accurate information is first obtained along a traverse half a mile to one mile in length; the steps are as follows: (1) A number of refraction depth probes are shot with different shot-point-to-geophone distances. (2) If necessary some reflection shooting is done. (3) The results are studied to assess the value of the method in solving geological or geophysical problems. (4) The most suitable technique can be adopted for the rest of the survey in the area; i.e., the refractors which are easiest to identify, and which yield the most useful structural information, can be surveyed by the most accurate and economical method.
