# Dictionary:Nonhyperbolic normal-moveout (velocity) analysis

Analysis that allows for typical vertical changes in velocity and anisotropy when using long offsets, that is, where the offset exceeds the reflector depth. In this case the hyperbolic equation for a reflection can often be expressed as

where *t*_{0} is the zero-offset traveltime, *x* is offset, is short-spread stacking velocity, and where and are *Thomsen anisotropic parameters* (q.v.).
