[ri′flek·shən ‚prō‚fīl]
(engineering)

It should be compulsory reading for those who regard structural geology as an abstract, academic exercise with no practical significance; for those seduced by computer-aided geo-pornography and deny the need for field work; for those beavering away to remove 'expensive' scientific disciplines from universities (we can hope!); for anyone who still respects teaching as a vocation at the university level that can have results not reduced to cost-outcome analysis or 'teaching-learning outcomes' (the very language betrays the intellectual aridity); and for those who believe geophysics alone can pronounce the final word on crustal deformation and evolution and consider a high-resolution seismic reflection profile an end in itself rather than a fruitful beginning.
The synthetic seismogram should also look something like the actual reflection profile.
As part of the new SINOPROBE-02 initiatiave (Sinoprobe-02) and with funding from the NSF of China (40830316), we collected a 310 km of deep seismic reflection profile is crossing Bangong-Nujiang suture and Qiangtang terrane, successfully revealed details of thecrustl structures down to the Moho and possible deeper.
"We're now very hopeful that the reflection profile records, which we use conventionally to extend the detail information we get from drill holes, will become more readable, and readable in terms of the oceanography of long-ago oceans," Winterer concludes.

Among the topics discussed are geochemical and geochronological constraints on the evolution of the Azores Plateau, the Shatsky Rise ocean plateau structure from two-dimensional multi-channel seismic reflection profiles and implications for oceanic plateau formation, lithium isotope evidence for magmatic assimilation of hydrothermally influenced crust beneath oceanic large igneous provinces, topographic expression of the Danger Islands Troughs and implications for tectonic evolution of the Manihiki Plateau in the western equatorial Pacific Ocean, and environmental consequences of Ontong Java Plateau and Kerguelen Plateau volcanism.
