Wavelet Polarity Convention

Minimum phase Ricker wavelet reverse polarity -> Increasing of Reflection Coefficient is located in peak (black)

Minimum phase Ricker wavelet normal polarity -> Increasing of Reflection Coefficients is located in trough (white)

Which one wavelet that is easy to interpret and correlate with increasing impedance/RC ? The answer is minimum phase Ricker wavelet reverse polarity, because it is consistent with increasing impedance and interval velocity values.
