{{#category_index:N|NMO stretch}} The shift toward lower frequencies that results from applying the normal-moveout correction (q.v.) to offset seismic traces. Measured by the change in a period as a result of applying NMO. A shift to lower frequencies generally means poorer resolution. Muting is often done at 50–100% NMO stretch.
