- 9. Reflection and Transmission <ul><li>The relative proportions are determined by the acoustic impedance – the product of density ( ρ ) and velocity ( v ): </li></ul><ul><li>Generally speaking, the greater its acoustic impedance is resulted from the “ harder ” the rock. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximum transmission of seismic energy requires a matching of acoustic impedances. </li></ul><ul><li>The total energy of a transmitted and reflected ray must equal the energy of the incident ray, due to partitioning energy as: </li></ul><ul><li>Incident Amplitude = Reflected Amplitude + Transmitted Amplitude </li></ul>Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM From Kearey, Brooks, and Hill, 2002
- 10. Reflection and Transmission It becomes for a normally incident ray: <ul><li>A negative value of R indicates a 180 o phase change in the reflected ray. </li></ul>Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM <ul><li>Reflection coefficient R is a numerical measure of the amplitude and polarity of the wave reflected from an interface, relative to the incident wave. It is the ratio between the amplitude ( A 1 ) of reflected ray and the amplitude ( A 0 ) of the incident ray: </li></ul>T 12 = 2I 1 / (I 1 +I 2 ) T 21 = 2I 2 / (I 2 +I 1 ) Transmission Coefficients
- 11. Example: Air-water reflection ρ air =0; Vp=330 m/s ρ water =1; Vp=1500m/s R AirWater = (I Water -I Air ) / (I Air +I Water ) R AirWater = (I Water -0) / (0+I Water ) R AirWater = 1 Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM Air Layer 1 Layer 2
- 12. ρ air =0; Vp=330 m/s ρ water =1; Vp=1500m/s Example: Water-air reflection R WaterAir = (I Air -I Water ) / (I Air +I Water ) R WaterAir = -1 ( A negative reflection coefficient) Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM Air Water Layer 1 Layer 2
- 13. Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM
- 14. Introduction to Geophysics-KFUPM <ul><li>The input seismic signal is a specific waveform with a certain amplitude ( A i ). </li></ul><ul><li>b) The seismic response to an interface has the same waveform as the input signal, scaled to the amplitude of the reflection coefficient ( A r ); it appears at two way travel time ( T ) dependent on the thickness ( h ) and velocity ( V 1 ) of the material above the interface. </li></ul>Fig. 5.25 of Lillie
