Advances in seismic acquisition and processing have both improved the resolution of the seismic data and allowed a generation of increasingly sophisticated earth models. Volume-based and horizon-based assessments of 3D seismic “volumes” can be used to build 3D geologic models with the aid of sequence stratigraphy concepts and integration of multiple types of data. Subsurface models derived from seismic stratigraphy-based techniques have been utilized in industry as an approach to define structural and stratigraphic frameworks and to assist in exploration and development of conventional and unconventional reservoirs. The purpose of this special section is to provide an update on the...
