The reflecting point where P-waves convert to S-waves or vice-versa. The set of data that have the same conversion point constitute a common-conversion-point (CCP) gather; after NMO correction, they can be stacked together to display converted waves. The conversion point is moved when the source and receiver are interchanged. See Figure C-13.
