Refraction seismic


The refraction seismic method consists of recording compression (p) and shearing (s) waves first arrivals.

After the processing and interpretation of the acquired data, we will have a 2D model of the subsurface, including the depth and the seismic waves velocities.

Shearing waves will define the site classification according to the Algerian Parasismic Laws (RPA).
