Analysis of the West Castle seismic surveys Part II. 2D seismic data processing and modelling of the vertical component data

Gabriela M. Suarez and Robert R. Stewart

ABSTRACT

As part of the West Castle seismic surveys, a 2D vertical-component 10 km crooked line was acquired and processed. The main objective was imaging the geologically complex subsurface structures of this area. During the processing we noted the low signal to noise ratio of the data as well as the variable quality of the data along the line. The prestack time migrated image allowed the observation of strong reflectors in the south of the line and the interpretation of some of the major geological structures of the areas such as the Lewis and Gardner thrusts.
