continuous profiling A seismic technique in which the geophone and shooting patterns provide 100% subsurface coverage and which can be applied in reflection surveys and, with more practical difficulty, in refraction surveys. In a refraction survey the refractor must be monitored, especially if it is not planar, and this may necessitate laying out the geophones in an irregular pattern.
