The Norwegian Barents Sea is used as a subsurface laboratory for improving our workflows to retrieve and quantify geomorphic information from seismic data over ancient carbonate systems. Here, we present a novel volume-based seismic interpretation work flow for improved imaging of carbonate features as, for example, subtle build-up complexes and karst. Frequency decomposition followed by RGB-blending is one of the most powerful tools in this work flow for extracting highly detailed information from seismic. A number of seismic surveys in the Norwegian Barents Sea have been revisited and interpreted with this work flow, revealing information on the Upper Paleozoic...
