Integrated Geophysical Interpretation in Xi`ling Depression (Bayanhaote Basin), Inner Mongolia, North China
Muna G. El Dawi and Liu Tianyou

Abstract:
The objective of this study is to use enhanced images of the seismic depths and/or geologic information integrated with gravity models, using 2.5-D interactive forward modeling, to give an improved model of subsurface structure in the vicinity of lines X5 and X6, in Xi`ling depression (Bayanhaote Basin), Inner Mongolia, North China. Gravity and seismic data are good complementary methods in that: seismic data can provide constraints on sub-horizontal interfaces, whereas gravity data image steep boundaries well (Location of faults or fault zones). The integrated interpretation is expected to eliminate the ambiguity inherent in the potential field method, can reveal the best situation of sub-surface geology, delineate the geometry of the depression and also the estimated depths to the basement surface. Meeting with the need of oil exploration, this equivalent to determining the types and the maximum thickness of the sedimentary section.
