Visualizing Precambrian basement tectonics beneath a carbon capture and storage site, Illinois Basin

Characterization of Precambrian basement tectonics using 3D reflection seismology is critical for fully constraining the geology of a carbon capture and storage (CCS) site. Our study applied state-of-the-art visualization and attribute analysis to a 3D seismic volume of the basement complex that und... Full description
