Exercise Four - Objectives & Data
THE STRATIGRAPHY OF THE NEOGENE OF THE WESTERN BAHAMAS
gain access to the complete image containing the un-interpreted
seismic section of the exercise, click on the appropriate
image to download it in a series of images (each divided image
can be printed on a regular 11" X 8.5" paper).
Complete seismic section (about 50" wide).This is an
Adobe Acrobat ".pdf" file and as such may be the
easiest to print from at any scale you need. If you choose
the largest size the print out will consist of four landscape
mode sheets that over lap and can be taped together.
These five images are linked to .jpg files. Most will find
the full image above in .pdf format is easiest to print from.
a son goût" or to each their own taste!
you do it, once
the 2D seismic line has been downloaded it will be seen that
the line is divided in 5 segments. These segments of the line
should be taped together to form a complete seismic line.
objectives for this exercise are listed below. Start with
1) and work through to 4). Problem 3) may be considered as
a dangerous call, but without tight biostratigraphic data
the use of the Sea Level chart may be a best first pass as
a tool for dating the stratigraphic section!!!
1) Determine the sequence stratigraphy of the line and the
clinoformed sequences that form this Neogene sedimentary section
