The COCORP 2D surface seismic data survey program was an inspiration to the author to produce this work. The COCORP data located in the state of Georgia is especially intriguing and thought-provoking as it appears to have imaged some large sub-surface structures that may include anticlines with essential four-way hydrocarbon trapping attributes that remain untested by the drill bit.
