Normal faults in the Inner Moray Firth - 1B Scene

VSA Author: Rob Butler
Interpretations: 1
Date Created: 2011-08-05

Multi-strand normal fault zone imaged on a regional 2D seismic line. Same part of the regional line (4) through the Inner Moray Firth as image 1A but with different depth conversion and correspondingly different interpretation. Note that seismic imaging of Jurassic structures in this part of the North Sea region is facilitated by the absence of the otherwise widespread blanket of Cret...
