Assuming a single source and a coincident receiver, equation 3.9 reduces
to that for poststack imaging:
where the subscript s denotes both the geophone and source position, which is now
coincident with the geophone.
For a homogeneous medium, this equations says that the reflection energy
is smeared onto the family
centered about the source point.
