Seismic Reflection Configuration

Reflection configuration is the shape of a reflection or surface. Some depositional environments produce characteristic reflection configurations. For example, a prograding delta produces a characteristics reflection package consisting of subparallel topset reflections, inclined foreset or clinoforms, and subparallel bottomset reflections in the basinal area. Lithology can be inferred from the location and the individual reflection attributes. For example, sigmoidal prograding configurations are more likely to be shale prone than are oblique prograding configurations; slumps tend to occur in shale-prone and so on.
