The use of an array or pattern of sources or geophones distributed over a sizeable surface area. The objective of arrays usually is to have vertically traveling reflection energy add up in-phase while horizontally traveling energy and random noise partially cancel, the entire array in effect acting as one large source or geophone. The term is sometimes reserved for situations where adjacent geophone or source patterns actually overlap.
