CASTILLO-LOPEZ, Luis Antonio  and  VARGAS-CUERVO, German. Seismic geomorphology and fluvial environmental elements in an area of Llanos Orientales (Colombia). Bol. cienc. tierra [online]. 2018, n.43, pp.45-52. ISSN 0120-3630.

Currently disciplines like seismic geomorphology, allows the integration of surface data, constituting a new vision for the interpretation of geological data, especially in areas where it is not possible to obtain surface and subsurface information directly. Thus, indirect methods like tridimensional seismic, surface analogues and sequence stratigraphy have allowed the geomorphology and architectural elements determination, in several kilometers of depth subsurface zones; presenting characteristic geometries, that make possible the delineation and mapping of channel deposits' architectural elements. For example, in the Llanos Orientales Basin throughout its whole extension, a series of architectural elements are present, which are established by facies associations that permit to define them in the subsurface, besides of being interpreted through sequence stratigraphy.

Keywords : Architectural elements; fluvio-lacustrine environment; sequence stratigraphy; seismic geomorphology..
