This image shows two seismic probes, within the same 3D data volume, plus an interpreted horizon surface. The probe on the left is a variable amplitude display and normal fault traces can be seen on both vertical surfaces and on the horizontal time-slice. The probe on the right is a coherency display and the fault traces are particularly clear on the horizontal upper surface. The interpreted horizon (colour-coded for TWT) passes into both seismic probes and is itself offset by a number of faults.
