Early spectral shaping boosts data quality

January 1, 1990

Reflection seismology is a method of conveying information about the interior of the earth to the surface of the earth. Most commonly the source and receivers are located at or near the surface. This paper is a conceptual discussion of how one may maximize the amount of information received from reflection paths between sources and receivers. Some of the basic tenets of information theory are discussed in simple terms for illustration purposes.
