..., and the uncertainty of the interpretation and labeling process decreases the model’s ability for making accurate predictions. Using the chalk-flint sequence scenario onshore Denmark as an example, we have developed a novel workflow for predicting subresolution thin layers from seismic sections. It entails generating...
