[Seisunix] chaotic reflection pattern

IT is strange because the discontinuous reflections are confined to the 
middle layer.  That is if it were gas, then it would have to be produced 
AND confined

to the layer of it source.  Are the units above and below impermeable?

Interpretation is a lot about the context and auxiliary information...

Is this a stacked section? Or a single-channel analog plot?
