Applied Geophysics – Refraction II Generalized reciprocal method Procedure: Velocity analysis function, T V •Ca lcu la te T V as a function of offset AG for a variety of XY distances • The optimal XY is when E and F converge on H • Optimal XY is identified by the smoothest T V curve • Refractor velocity V’ is the reciprocal of the slope of T V • Can determine variations in V’ along the length of the profile
