embedded wavelet

1. n. [Geophysics]
The shape of a wavelet produced by reflection of an actual wave train at one interface with a positive reflection coefficient. The embedded wavelet is useful for generating a convolutional model, or the convolution of an embedded wavelet with a reflectivity function and random noise, during seismic processing or interpretation.
Alternate Form: basic wavelet
