Horizon Picking using an Interpretation Workstation

Audience

Geophysicists who need to pick and work on horizons in building depth models, calculating TOMO statics, applying trim statics, etc.

Content

Horizon picking is one of the most used features on an interpretation workstation.

Through various practical exercises you become familiar with these different topics; Loading data and display setup, create horizons and horizon groups, pick horizons using waveform tracking or ISO value tracking, picking horizons using freehand mode or control profile, pick horizons on seismic data, pick horizons on attribute FDM, QC and save horizons, import horizons in external format, interpolate and smooth horizons, merge, split, shift, separate horizons, trim and close horizons, load horizons from seismic data trace header, working on horizons with regions and finally extract attributes from horizons.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the procedures of horizon picking
  • Pick horizons proficiently using automatic or manual methods
  • Know how to QC horizons and work on horizons with various functions
  • Choose the best strategy for horizon picking
