Abstract

Winnipegosis Formation reefs in southern Saskatchewan are typically encased in the thick, apparently incompressible salts of the Prairie Evaporite. Illustrates the usefulness of seismic data to separate postdepositional compaction features from primary features to determine the primary morphology of a reef better and to determine the relative amounts of postdepositional compaction with the different reef environments.
