In this study, it is proposed to build geological model based on proportions of fluvial deposits outcrop. Then forward seismic model is constructed and clustering of seismic traces by using different unsupervised algorithms (k-means, DBSCAN and Agglomerative clustering) is performed. Results are compared with ground truth, which in our case is NTG map of interval of interest in geological model. Finally the optimal settings of the algorithms and the most accurate clustering method are identified.
