Abstract

Wavelet (Mathematical Microscope) analysis of seismic data is made fashionable for thin bed precise subsurface imaging and interpretation. 3D seismic data interpretation for subsurface imaging of thin bed contourite systems is integral part of research work . Seismic expression of bottom current deposits from that of other related deepwater sediments (turbidites, hemipelagites, debrites, etc.), and to maximising the information that can be derived from seismic data. A wide variety of seismic facies are common in contourites, most of which are equally present in turbidite systems. Seismic facies associations that may be typical of contourites are still to be defined. Seismic characteristics also depend very closely on the methods of seismic acquisition and processing. Sediment waves and channels are very common both in contourite and turbidite systems, and not specifically diagnostic of either system. Slope deformation, sediment creep, and large-scale water-escape may cause a hummocky seismic facies that can be misinterpreted as sediment waves. The identification of hydrocarbon reservoirs from seismic data is a key issue in the oil industry. Texture Segmentation of a 3D Seismic Section with Wavelet Transform is employed for pattern recognition.
