"bright spot" on reflection seismic profile has been regarded as one of the important indications of oil and gas, and it has been widely used in the oil and gas exploration. Moreover, with the development of new technologies, "bright spot" technique has been gradually applied to the exploration of coal, underground water and other fields, and also in the research of deep structure of the earth. Based on the reviewing of published literatures, the authors described the structural features and generation of "bright spot" on seismic profile for energy resources exploration and crustal-scale deep seismic reflection profiles, and further summarized the applications of the "bright spot" technique in energy resource exploration and deep structure research.
