9.1.2 Earth Model Interpretation

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

An earth model interpretation is an organized collection of subsurface feature-interpretations, which are integrated in their mutual relationships.

As is the case for all RESQML data objects, a given earth model feature can have many associated earth model interpretations.

BUSINESS RULE: Each earth model interpretation may consist of only one each of these three interpretation types: structural organization interpretation, stratigraphic organization interpretation, and/or fluid organization interpretation. These interpretations must be consistent with one another. (NOTE: Currently, this business rule cannot be enforced in the schema so the reading software must "trust" that the writing software has followed this rule.)

Each of the component feature interpretations that make up the organization interpretations (for example, horizon interpretations, fault interpretations, geologic unit interpretations, and contact interpretations) may also be associated together, which is explained in Section 9.2 Components of Earth Model Organizations .
