Isochron. 1. Contours of equal reflection time, time intervals, etc. 2. Often the time interval between two reflections, which may indicate stratigraphic changes, reef buildups, variations in thickness of an underlying diapiric material (salt or shale) at the time of deposition, etc. Time intervals may vary because of variations in velocity or thickness, or both.
