Abstract

The question of determining the velocity characteristic of the upper part of the section is of considerable importance in seismic exploration. The upper part of the section may be studied using acoustic logging [1], well shooting, or interval velocity surveys in wells [2, 3], or by tracing of ray paths with buried geophones [4–7]. The order of preference for these methods is acoustic logging, well shooting [8–10], and then the other methods.
