Our study focusses on seismic analysis of fault damage zones. A model containing a fault zone populated with fault facies is used as input to seismic forward modeling and imaging. A statistical comparison of the geological input model and the resulting seismic images was carried out, and the link between fault zone model parameters and seismic resolution studied. Our study demonstrates the potential of systematically using detailed geological 3D models of fault zone structures and properties to understand seismic responses from subsurface fault zones.
