How do the SSAM and C3 methods differ? Each method occupies, as it were, a separate chapter in the history of interpretive processing. Each of the two processes goes in a different direction, so one process never could evolve from the other. We make this clear by the following analogy: A cross section through the earth looks like an antique piece of knotty pine wood, such as is found on an old New England tabletop. The wood grain represents the rock layers. The wood had been warped, worm-eaten, broken and split, and then poorly put back together with glue and nails. The splits and breaks represent unconformities and faults in the geology.
