Interpretation was the next step. Each record was examined visually. A primary reflection is an event that represents direct passage of a seismic wave from the source to the depth point from which it is reflected and then a direct passage back to the receiver. In other words, a primary reflection involves just one reflection. In contrast, a multiple reflection involves more than one reflection (Figure 2).
