Chapter 9 covers the subject of 3D seismic interpretation methods and techniques. In this chapter we review the basic principles of seismic interpretation and the integration of seismic data with well log data, along with the philosophy of geophysical mapping and the introduction of correct mapping procedures, techniques, and methods. These subjects are just as relevant today as they were prior ...
