Modern subsurface exploration uses a three-dimensional (3-D) approach to interpret faults and layer boundaries on seismic reflection data. Three-dimensional seismic reflection datasets comprise a continuous volume of reflection samples with a vertical and horizontal resolution, of typically <15 m (c.50 ft). Increasing computer power has allowed the development of interpretation software that allows for direct mapping within an on-screen 3-D representation of the data. The seismic data volume can be processed to emphasize reflections from continuous layers, or to emphasize the discontinuities (e.g., faults) affecting those layers. A key workflow is to build the interpretation of horizons (layer boundaries)...
