Fault visualization enhancement using ant tracking technique and its application in the Taranaki basin, new Zealand



The ant tracking technique has been widely used in fault interpretation. However, the reliability of the results is highly dependent on appropriately choosing signal processing method and volume attributes. In our study area, which lies in the southern Taranaki Basin, we applied Graphic Equalizer as the processing tool and the Chaos attribute before running the ant tracking algorithm. Results show that the procedure has better quality and can map both the major and minor faults more efficiently than the conventional fault interpretation procedure.
