Paper Summary

We present a case study that uses different methods of addressing a sharp velocity contrast across a major fault boundary in the southwestern Barents Sea. The area under investigation is known as the Hoop Fault Complex. The Hoop Fault Complex divides the Loppa High and the Bjarmeland Platform and lies between 72o 50’N, 21o 50’E and 74oN, 26oE. It is one of several NE-SW trending lineaments in the Southwestern Barents Sea (Gabrielsen et al., 1990). This depth migration project covered approximately 800 km2 of a larger 3D survey acquired in 2009.
