Applied Geophysics – Refraction II Phantom arrivals 1. Shoot a long-offset shot, S L 2. The head wave traveltime curves for both shots will be parallel, offset by time T 3. Subtract T from the S L arrivals to generate fictitious 2 nd layer arrivals close to S – the phantom arrivals 4. The intercept point at S can then be determined: T i 5. Use the usual formula to determine perpendicular layer thickness beneath S 1 2 2 1 2 2 2 V V V V h T s i = Applied Geophysics – Refraction II Separation of delay times Delay time

If we know the delay time, V 1 and V 2 then we can calculate the depth....
