In geologically complex areas where hydrocarbon exploration is to occur, the effectiveness of the seismic method will depend to a large extent on the ability of geophysicists to interpret the more difficult data. This in turn depends largely on a thorough understanding of the mechanisms of seismic wave propagation. The principles of geometric seismology provide good insights into many of the essential physical processes that give rise to the original data.
