Visualising seismic data in 3D - Gulf of Mexico 1, West Cameron Survey

This "Survey" hosts a series of images showing different visualisations of 3D seismic data from the West Cameron survey in the US Gulf of Mexico. The original data set was provided for public use by Geco-Prakla (Sclumberger-Geoquest). The visualisations show ways of displaying the seismic data themselves together with other geological attributes derived or interpreted from the seismic data.

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 inte...

This image shows three seismic probes, within the same 3D data volume, plus an interpreted horizon surface and a number of interpreted fault surfaces. The probes on the left and on the right are variable amplitude displays but with different colour maps. The central probe is a coherency display. Normal faults can be seen on all of the vertical and horizontal faces of the three probes....

This image a single seismic probe, a vertical seismic section and two fault surafces. The seismic probe is a variable amplitude display wich is clipped at a constant TWT either side of an interpreted horizon (intersecting purple surface). The probe is offset by two interpreted faults which branch from each other to define an intervening terrace. The fault surfaces are colour-coded for...

This image shows a single horizon surface intersected by two fault surafces. The horizon surface has been autotracked at a constant amplitude, displayed in blue, and is vertically offset by a number of fault traces showing lighter display colours. Two of the faults have been interpreted into full 3D surfaces. The fault surfaces provide a slice through the 3D seismic volume and they ha...
