Title: Application of Seismography to Geological Problems

Author(s): Eugene McDermott (2)


This paper contains an outline of the principles and methods of applied seismography. The science of seismography is predicated on the elastic properties of earth materials. The refraction and reflection of elastic waves and the conditions governing these are considered. These two phenomena are closely related. The application of the seismic method to salt-dome exploration on the Gulf Coast and the development of the refraction method for general structure determination is followed by an explanation of the reflection method. Several actual reflection records indicate the method of identifying reflections.
