Two examples of dip reflection work on faulted structures in the Gulf Coast are presented. In one example a large fault is clearly shown by geophysical data alone, and in the other example the assistance of geological data is required to prove the existence of a small fault which the geophysical data alone did not show. The problem of whether misclosure in dip reflection traverses is due to observational errors or faulting is not resolved finally, but suggestions are offered which may lead toward a solution in any particular case.
