By crosscorrelating transmission recordings of acoustic or elastic wave fields at two points, one can retrieve the reflection response between these two points. This technique has previously been applied to measured elastic data using diffuse wave-field recordings. These recordings should be relatively very long. The retrieval can also be achieved by using deterministic transient sources with the advantage of using short recordings, but with the necessity of using many P -wave and S -wave sources. Here, it is shown how reflections were retrieved from the cross correlation of transient ultrasonic transmission data measured on a heterogeneous granite sample.
