The seismic maps peel off overlying rocks to reveal the chalk features (Image: GSAB/Stewart/Allen) cm.
Silverpit crater mapped at top Cretaceous chalk. Greyscale shading is geological dip - darker is steeper, darkest linear trends are fault scarps. Numbered locations are hydrocarbon exploration wells. Green line is location of seismic line shown in other Figure. cm.

Seismic examples from Silverpit structure showing structural form and geometry of the older and younger strata.
A. Uninterpreted seismic line, location shown on other Figure. Inset cube shows the relatively unstructured underlying Triassic and top Permian seismic reflectors.
B. Annotated version of seismic line. Vertical scale of seismic and annotated sections is exaggerated approximately x2. Zones 1,2 and 3 correspond to the central crater, and zones of concentric rings characterized by asymmetric tilted fault blocks and symmetrical graben.
