3D Model of the Weald Basin

It is important to remember that a single seismic profile is only one line across an area that is really three dimensional.

To help you visualize the ‘big picture’ when you activate the 3D model, it may be helpful to think about the following:

  • the relationship of seismic data to the familiar solid geology displayed on geological maps
  • compare the structures on the geological cross-section with those on the seismic profile

The 3D model can be rotated, zoomed and lit from different angles.
