1. n. [Geophysics]
An event in which one deeper and one near-surface reflector, such as the base of weathering or the ocean floor, are involved. The seismic energy bounces twice from the deep reflector and only once from the shallow reflector, causing the multiple to appear at roughly twice the traveltime of the primary reflection.
