Spectral decomposition is a proven, useful tool for gaining understanding of complex geologic regions such as fluvialdeltaic systems and turbidites. Typically, interpreters focus on spectral magnitude while downplaying or ignoring phase. In this abstract, we present a visualization method that combines spectral phase and magnitude using a huesaturation-value (HSV) color map and demonstrate application of this approach to mapping an incised valley system from the Anadarko Basin, Oklahoma, USA.
