This case history is a story of the trials and tribulations encountered in our quest to produce a viable interpretation of seismic data from western Alberta, Canada. We summarize the many modeling and data processing steps used to produce a final depth image in the hope that this will help others who venture into imaging foothills data.

The structural geology of the Alberta Foothills is dominated by a series of thrust faults, complex folds, and steeply dipping formations. (For a complete description of folds, faults, triangle zones, and structural traps in the Foothills, refer to the article by Newson in...
