reflection tomography

1. n. [Geophysics]
A technique to measure and display the three-dimensional distribution of velocity or reflectivity of a volume of the Earth by using numerous sources and receivers at the Earth's surface. In reflection tomography, space is divided into cells, each having a certain velocity and reflectivity. The final model is the one whose velocities and reflectivities best describe the data.
