Generalized nonhyperbolic moveout approximation |

The linear velocity model is defined by

The reflection traveltime can be expressed in an analytical form as a
function of offset (Slotnick, 1959)

This model has maximum (critical) offset and traveltime that are defined by

Substituting equations A-6 and A-7 into equations 22-23 and also using the expressions for traveltime parameters A-3, A-4, and A-5 results in complicated but analytical expressions for additional parameters and .
