Abstract. Seismic reflection S-wave technique is very effective and has demonstrated nice results in previous investigations of various authors. However, the salt layer was not detected in the Ghor Al-Haditha area (Jordan) because of some reasons. The main reason is that about ~ 80 % of reflection lines were carried outside the salt area delineated by Ezersky et al. (2013b) based on results of El-Isa et al. (1995). Other possible factor is too strong filtering of seismic data obtained from the upper part of the section (up to 50 m deep). Our and Polom (2018) assessment of the work of other authors diverges. We affirm that the salt layer of 7–10 m thickness is located at ~ 40 m depth in the Ghor Al-Haditha area.

Short summary
We have analysed here a publication of Polom et al. (2018) on shear wave velocity reflection study in the Ghor Al-Haditha area (Jordan) that did not detect buried salt layer suggested earlier by other researchers. We suggest that the salt layer is located at ~ 40 m depth in the Ghor Al-Haditha area. It is very important because presence or absence of salt in the study area influences on the selection of the model of sinkhole formation and safety of the tourism, engineering and agriculture.
