Abstract

The application of sequence stratigraphy to seismic interpretation has proven to be fundamentally important in basin analysis. It provides a framework for understanding strat-igraphic evolution and is a key element in predicting the spatial distribution of reservoir, seal, and source rocks. Traditional methods of seismic se-quence stratigraphy make use of observations such as stacking patterns, seismic character of facies, and their distribution to develop subsurface models. We present a set of seismically derived geometric attributes that enhance and characterize these observations, allowing a sequence stratigraphic framework to be developed in the earliest stages of interpretation.
