  • qqq
  • Whether the reflected wave has the same or opposite polarity as the input seismic signal depends on whether the reflection coefficient is positive or negative.
  • Convolution means replacing each reflection coefficient with the input seismic signal, scaled to the amplitude and polarity of the reflection coefficient.
