Computers can determine velocities by carrying out calculations based on many intricate time-distance relationships, and the results can present empirical velocity as a function of traveltime (or depth) in a display called the velocity spectrum (Taner and Koehler, 1969[1]). Empirical velocities so determined are called stacking velocities, and the problem is then to relate those velocities to a mathematical relationship from which the thicknesses and velocities of the subsurface layers can be estimated.
