Glossary:Check-shot survey

Jump to navigation Jump to search

A seismic measurement involving a seismic source on the Earth surface and a seismic sensor suspended by wireline in a well. The objective is to measure the travel time required for a seismic wavelet to travel from the Earth's surface to the downhole receiver. Check-shot data allow interpreters to convert seismic image times to stratigraphic depth (or vice versa).
