A parameter used to describe air-gun performance. An air-gun wavelet consists of a high-amplitude peak followed by a high-amplitude trough. The parameter PTP defines the magnitude of the source wavelet amplitude measured from the apex of the leading peak of the wavelet to the apex of the following trough. A high PTP value indicates a high energy output. Typically abbreviated as PTP.
