Geologists and geophysicists interpret seismic images, in the form of maps and cross sections, so they can choose the most favorable drilling sites for new oil wells — either wildcats or field-extension wells. The word interpretation is subject to many meanings. In the final analysis, however, interpretation involves a person’s exercise of judgment on the basis of geologic and geophysical criteria.
