This seismic horizon is the basal surface of a delta-to-slope system (see parent regional project). It is draped with seismic amplitude extracted along the horizon (red = high amplitude, blue = low amplitude). Seismic data is courtesy of CGGVeritas. Image presented at the "Frontiers of Seismic Geomorphology" showcase held at the Geological Society, London, June, 2010.
