A 3-D perspective view of a subsurface structure map, undeveloped offshore
West Africa reservoir, draped with a 2-D spectral decomposition image.
The reservoir is a sandy turbidite filling an erosional valley at a depth
of about 3,100 meters. The draped image also conveys a 3-D perspective
by showing three different slices through the reservoir section with different
color bars (red, green and blue). Understanding the vertical stacking
patterns of flow units is important for determining optimum drainage.
