Seismic data offer an abstract, incomplete and ambiguous representation of the subsurface. The interpreters’ task is to use these data and identify and classify objects they have never seen before. During interpretation they rely on context and association: seismic data are analysed as part of a larger scene and certain fragments of information are associated to geological features that are not necessarily obvious in the data set. Experience and knowledge of the interpreters are of paramount importance, the less complete and more abstract the representation, the greater level of expertise is required to extract information from the data.
