A subsurface location that will reflect a ray from any source to any receiver. A reflector may be represented by many aligned scatterpoints. Reflections from a scatterpoint are defined by the double-square-root equation; they form a surface in the prestack volume (x,h,t) that is known as Cheops pyramid.
