Introduction to Seismic Texture
This chapter introduces the concept of seismic texture analysis. Several seismic textures and their geological messages are described with respect to depositional history and reservoir quality. Finally, a strategy of how to automatically map these textures is recommended and limitations of this method are mentioned.
