Faulting at the limit of seismic resolution, offshore NW Morocco. Interpretation

See also annotated version. Faults in ?contourites The faults are represented variably with depth as frequency and amplitude of reflectors vary. Do the complex patterns to R of section represent closely spaced faults (i.e. real geological deformation) or seismic noise (or both!). The bright, inclined reflectors - are these remobiilsed sand - (sandstone injections) along fault planes, or seismic artifacts!?
