Geophysical interpretation of seismic images is part of geophysical oil prospecting. Its aim is the detection of geologic formations in a seismic cross-section of the earth, which are likely to contain oil reservoirs. It is a labour intensive task and it is heavily based on the experience of the interpreter. Therefore it has not been automated as ithas already been done with other tasks of geophysical seismic signal processing. The aim of this work is to construct an expert system which can automate, at least partly, seismic interpretation. The system developed is able to detect several geologic formations of interest (eg. faults, anticlines, unconformities, salt domes, reefs).
