1. n. [Geophysics]

A quantitative measure of the coherence of seismic data from multiple channels that is equal to the energy of a stacked trace divided by the energy of all the traces that make up the stack. If data from all channels are perfectly coherent, or show continuity from trace to trace, the semblance has a value of unity.
