Building of the Model

I created the model from 5 cross-sections in the inline direction and 4 cross-sections in the cross-line direction using the Integra Software [*]. In this system the reflector surfaces are represented by B-splines which allows the accurate computation of the normal to the reflector at every point Pereyra (2000). In general, the structural and velocity model is constructed by integrating all available information from geology, well logs and previous 2D and 3D seismic data. The model does not need to be particularly detailed, although the main features are expected to be reasonably well represented. In the present case the model is not derived from any data and is purely conceptual.
