Stratigraphic, reservoir and fluid interpretation demands a thorough understanding of the seismic-to-well tie. Data phase, polarity and tuning effects significantly influence this tie and are often poorly understood. By relating seismic character to known subsurface geology, the interpreter should gain better understanding and be able to calibrate himself to his data. This is an important preliminary stage in any seismic interpretation beyond structure.
