Abstract

Historically, geologic hazards have been primarily identified using high-resolution 2-D single-channel seismic (e.g., 3.5 kHz and minisparker records), side-scan sonar surveys, geotechnical data from selected borings and in-situ measurements, and drop cores. However, effective use of coherency and other seismic attributes on standard 3-D seismic data can allow early detection and delineation of both surface and subsurface geologic drilling hazards prior to the acquisition of high-resolution "hazard" surveys.
