Structural Validation, Restoration, and Prediction

  • Chapter

Abstract

This chapter presents techniques for validating structural interpretations and for extracting additional information, such as the shape of the structure beyond the data, predicting the presence of structures too small to be seen at the resolution of the data, and determining the structural evolution. Most of the techniques of structural restoration, balance and prediction are related to one another by use of a common set of kinematic models, which is why they will be discussed together here.
