The use of reflection seismic data is necessary for the proper interpretation of buried block fault, drape-fold structural features. By the application of certain basic principles, it is possible to make reasonable structural interpretations in areas where seismic information is of poor quality or where complete coverage cannot be acquired. A seismic-model study and a number of seismic sections from various Wyoming basins illustrate the capabilities and limitations of reflection seismic techniques for defining block fault, drape-fold structures.
