Quick Reference


A method similar in principle to a constant-velocity gather (CVG), in which the normal move-out is applied as in a CVG and up to ten gathers are stacked (see stacking) and displayed as CVS velocity panels. The correct velocity is that which produces the strongest event for a given reflector. CVS tends not to produce such precise values for velocity as the CVG method.
