Fault surface detection in 3-D seismic data

  title={Fault surface detection in 3-D seismic data},
  author={David Gibson and Michael Spann and Jonathan Turner and Timothy Wright},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
A novel approach to the automatic extraction of geological faults from three-dimensional (3-D) seismic data is described, and qualitative and quantitative comparisons of manually and automatically picked fault geometries interpreted from both high and medium quality 3-D seismic datasets are presented. An algorithm has been developed that allows semiautomated identification, extraction, and modeling of fault surfaces imaged in 3-D seismic datasets. Based on a multistage approach, the algorithm… CONTINUE READING
