(thorn’ burgz) A refraction interpretation method that uses Huygens’ principle to construct wavefronts from reciprocal source points, working backward from the observed arrival times at the surface. The velocities above the refractor must be known for the construction. See wavefront method and Thornburgh (1930) or Sheriff and Geldart (1995, 442).
