Using RMS amplitudes from forward seismic-reflectivity modeling of channelized deep-water slope deposits to inform stratigraphic interpretation and sub-seismic scale architecture, Tres Pasos Formation, Magallanes Basin, Patagonia, Chile
Deep-water slope channels outcropping in the Tres Pasos Formation of the Magallanes Basin in southern Chile are used as the foundation of a forward seismic-reflectivity modeling study to better inform stratigraphic interpretation. The multi-scale architecture of deep-water slope channels is often difficult to interpret from low resolution seismic-reflectivity surveys. Valuable insight can be gained from forward seismic-reflectivity modeling using multiple-scales of architecture as building blocks (i.e., channel elements stacking into channel complexes) to provide insight into subsurface ...
