Groshong, Jr. University of Alabama and 3-D Structure Research 10641 Dee Hamner Rd. Northport, AL 35475 USA E-mail: rhgroshong@cs.com Binding: Strtz GmbH, Wrzburg Preface Geological structures are three dimensional, yet are typically represented by, and in-terpreted from, outcrop maps and structure contour maps, both of which are curved two-dimensional surfaces. Maps plus serial sections, called 2-D, provide a closer approach to three dimensionality. Computer technology now makes it possible for geological interpretations to be developed from the beginning in a fully three dimen-sional environment. Fully 3-D geological models allow significantly better interpreta-tions and interpretations that are much easier to share with other geologists and with the general public. This book provides an overview of techniques for constructing structural interpretations in 2-D, 2-D and 3-D environments; for interpolating be-tween and extrapolating beyond the control points; and for validating the final inter-pretation. The underlying philosophy is that structures are three-dimensional solid bodies and that data from throughout the structure, whether in 2-D or 3-D format, should be integrated into an internally consistent 3-D interpretation. should be integrated into an internally consistent 3-D interpretation....
