near surface correction

1. n. [Geophysics]
Another term for static correction, a bulk shift of a seismic trace in time during seismic processing. A common static correction is the weathering correction, which compensates for a layer of low seismic velocity material near the surface of the Earth. Other corrections compensate for differences in topography and differences in the elevations of sources and receivers.
Alternate Form: static correction, statics
