This site describes an experiment at Duke University's Division of Earth and Ocean Sciences which examines how much of the rock record is retained in seismic reflection data. Experimental strata formed in a laboratory basin model simulate natural strata formation and digital images generate synthetic seismic data. These synthetic data are compared to the digital images of the experimental strata to assess the amount of stratigraphic information preserved in the modeled seismic data.
