Seismic modelling and interpretation of fluvial deposited sand bodies

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The way fluvial sand bodies are deposited in a basin give rise to different stacking patterns betw een individual sand bodies. The rate at whic haccommodation space is generated in a sedimentary basin and the maturity of the riv er system cortrols the v ertical and lateral stacking pattern of the deposited sand bodies. The influence of the stacking pattern on the reflected seismic signal is studied with a modified wedge model. T o visualise the subtle tuning effects of the individual and stac ked sand bodies, a localised spectral decomposition is made. We illustrate this interpretativ emethod with a fluvial 3D geological model.
