Abstract:

Our research group is collecting and analyzing various levels of high resolution seismic data and cores, for ground-truthing seismic facies, on continental margins with a spectrum of depositional boundary conditions. The long-term goal of this work is develop stochastic models of variation of geotechnical and seismic property distribution on margins subjected to a spectrum of depositional regimes. The importance of being able to produce these stochastic models is that it provides a means of making predictions with assignment of statistical risk of the variation of geotechnical and seismic properties in areas where the only data that may exist for that margin at the time that a prediction is needed is information on physical oceanography or other gross descriptions of depositional conditions on the margin.
