Seismic Horizon Tracing with Diffusion Tensors

Seismic Horizon Tracing with Diffusion Tensors teaser image

This work presents a new workflow for the interpretation of seismic volume data, as well as a novel approach to interactively tracing seismic horizons. Instead of interpreting the seismic cube slice by slice, in the proposed workflow interpretation is performed on the planes connecting wells that have been drilled. Thereby the additional data provided by the well logs can easily be used during the interpretation process. Instead of manually picking the seismic horizon, we propose an algorithm which uses numerical integration over a vector field computed with diffusion tensors for automatic tracing, based on a user-defined seed point.
