Vertical velocity gradients can be readily accommodated in seismic refraction interpretations by using simple mathematical idealizations of curved raypaths entailed by certain analytic representations of these gradients. Computation procedures are formulated for velocity gradients in the overburden or an intermediate layer of a multilayer section. The former is demonstrated for an overburden velocity gradient manifest in published time-distance data.
