The aim of this study is to correlate outcropped-based knowledge of fault interaction, linkage and growth to seismic fault attribute volumes. This ended up in a better understanding of seismic attribute variations and improved the reliability of interpretation. Advanced fault imaging using seismic attributes has substantially improved imaging of fault characteristics. Utilizing 3D seismic attributes, we followed the fault interaction related structures through different geological layers, which is otherwise hard to follow on outcrop. The present study illustrate the importance of using applications of seismic attribute volumes for detailed interpretation of fault interaction and their evolution through time. This study also provides criteria for more quantitative interpretation of fault attribute volumes instead of just geometrical observations in 3D. Finally, this study propose that the magnitude value of attribute volumes (fault enhance) provides a relationship to the intensity of deformation related to fault interaction.
