Seismic Volume Visualization for Horizon Extraction

Daniel Patel, Stefan Bruckner, Ivan Viola, M. Eduard Gröller

CONFERENCE PAPER: In Proceedings of IEEE Pacific Visualization 2010, pp. 73–80, 2010. DOI: 10.1109/PACIFICVIS.2010.5429605

Abstract

Seismic horizons indicate change in rock properties and are central in geoscience interpretation. Traditional interpretation systems involve time consuming and repetitive manual volumetric seeding for horizon growing. We present a novel system for rapidly interpreting and visualizing seismic volumetric data. First we extract horizon surface-parts by preprocessing the seismic data. Then during interaction the user can assemble in realtime the horizon parts into horizons. Traditional interpretation systems use gradient-based illumination models in the rendering of the seismic volume and polygon rendering of horizon surfaces. We employ realtime gradientfree forward-scattering in the rendering of seismic volumes yielding results similar to high-quality global illumination. We use an implicit surface representation of horizons allowing for a seamless integration of horizon rendering and volume rendering. We present a collection of novel techniques constituting an interpretation and visualization system highly tailored to seismic data interpretation.
