{{#category_index:F|first break}} The first recorded signal attributable to seismic-wave travel from a known source. First breaks on reflection records are used for information about the weathering. An initial compression usually shows as a downkick (SEG polarity standard). First-break times are used in static corrections and in headwave interpretation.
