Brief description

High quality refraction and wide-angle reflection seismic data recorded by ocean-bottom seismographs (OBSs) deployed by the Australian Geological Survey Organisation along the 700 km long transect in the Carnarvon Basin effectively supplement results obtained by means of the conventional reflection technology.

Velocity information can now be derived from both CDP (nearvertical reflection) and OBS (refraction/wide-angle reflection) data. Generally, CDP-derived average velocities are lower than
OBS-derived velocities and this deviation increases with depth: from ~0.1 km/s at 8 s two way time (TWT) to 0.8-1.6 km/s at 16 s TWT. If the CDP-derived velocities are used to depth convert reflection data, then depth to these TWTs would be underestimated by 0.4 to 6.4-12.8 km respectively. Some local anomalies (at ~6s TWT CDP-derived velocities may be more than 0.1 km/s higher
than the OBS-derived velocities) distort this general trend. These would result in ~0.3 km local overestimates of the depth equivalent of 6s TWT. Co-analysis of the interval velocity field reconstructed
from the travel time-based interpretation of the OBS data and the conventional reflection image of the crust in some cases shows their poor correlation.
