The net sand distribution confirmed the presence of a body that was deposited in a paleo valley with an approximately NS main direction and the presence of isolated bodies that run almost parallel to the main body, as was interpreted in the facies map before Amaya (1996).
The results will be primarily delivered using TGS' proprietary Facies Map Browser application which is compatible with equivalent software.
The exported pictures of the Full-field Model in figure 14 and the cross-sections in figure 15 show the adjustments of the modelled facies distribution to the facies maps and correlation panels respectively, which were interpreted directly from the stratigraphic profiles.
The facies maps reconstructed from the field data were adjusted layer by layer during the performed simulation.

Seismic image interpretation using texture, appearance albedo variations can be further developed & merged with some seismo-facies classification, which help generate realistic lithologic facies maps that can complement geomorphologic facies.
