NB: The purpose of this glossary is to promote a common language for salt tectonics and to illustrate the terminology and basic concepts by seismic lines, cross-sections, sketches and photographs. Due to confidential reasons, the locations and orientations of the seismic lines and cross-sections are not indicated. Some ofthe proposed seismic interpretations are are not calibrated, so, they can eventually be falsified.
