  5. 6. SEISMIC STRATIGRAPHY SEISMIC STRATIGRAPHY “ a method of seismic interpretation based on recognizing seismic sequences and seismic facies and using the spatial geometries, arrangements, and distributions of these sequences and facies to infer depositional environments and lithofacies patterns.” Bureau of Economic Geology
  6. 7. ELASTIC WAVEFIELD STRATIGRAPHY “ a method of seismic interpretation based on the concept that any mode of a seismic wavefield may provide unique seismic sequence information and/or unique facies information across some stratigraphic intervals that cannot be observed with other modes of the wavefield.” ELASTIC WAVEFIELD STRATIGRAPHY Bureau of Economic Geology
  7. 8. CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHIC SURFACE “ a depositional surface where geologic time is a fixed, constant value at every coordinate on the surface. Synonymous with stratal surface and bedding plane.” CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHIC SURFACE Bureau of Economic Geology
