Abstract

Whereas seismic stratigraphy has its roots in the identification and delineation of depositional packages and their bounding unconformities on seismic data, sequence stratigraphy is primarily concerned with well log patterns and outcrop geometry to evaluate sub-sequence packages. In this paper, we discuss the identification of depositional packages and stratigraphic elements from seismic volumes, utilizing not just vertical sections of conventional amplitude data but alternative slice views, animations, and visualization techniques.
