Abstract

Every surface pierced by a salt dome has a unique structure, so that every structure-contour pattern around a dome is different. Nevertheless, the structure around domes is governed by the same set of factors—factors that we must be familiar with if we are to create geologically realistic structure maps from a minimum of well data. Fault patterns are discussed in unit 19. Thus, although faulting is an important component in structure-contour maps, there is no need for repetition here. Let us examine the folding associated with a salt dome in terms of the structure-contour pattern.
