Bathymetry of Sinu Prism Regional Project

VSA Author: Jamie Vinnels, Rob Butler
Scenes: 0
Interpretations: 2
Date Created: 2010-01-26

Bathymetic map (merged surveys) for the seabed across the Sinu Accretionary Prism, offshore Colombia. The Magdalena Fan is evident at the top (north) of the map. A set of related regional projects provide the context for clipped 2D seismic profiles that show the shallow section across the prism.



Interpretations related to this Regional Project

Structural interpretation and minibasins, Sinu Prism Interpretation

VSA Author: Jamie Vinnels, Rob Butler
Date Created: 2010-01-26

Interpretation of bathymetry with onlap traces and fold hinges indicated. Onlap was defined by tracking reflection terminations onto intra- and inter-basinal bathymetry using 2D seismic reflection lines and interpolation using the bathymetry data.

Structural interpretation with currents, Sinu Prism Interpretation

Date Created: 2010-01-26

Interpretation of bathymetry with onlap traces and fold hinges indicated along with the distributary routes mapped (DR). Onlap was defined by tracking reflection terminations onto intra- and inter-basinal bathymetry using 2D seismic reflection lines and interpolation using the bathymetry data. Shelf dispersal data suggests that the majority of sediment fed to the Sinú Accretionary Pri...
