Unequivocal identification of reflections on shot gathers is not only necessary, it is mandatory for meaningful interpretations of shallow, CMP stacked seismic sections. With shallow seismic shot gathers from hundreds of sites, we have tackled the entire range of near-surface settings and associated obstacles to high quality reflection sections. Imaging objectives have ranged from hydrogeologic charac-terization to fault mapping to stratigraphic variations.
