A seismic method in which geophone groups are placed uniformly along the length of the line and sources are so spaced that continuous (usually 100%) subsurface coverage is obtained along the line. Continuous profiling can be accomplished with a variety of spread arrangements. Refraction continuous profiling requires continuous control on the refractor being mapped; this may require irregular surface layouts.
