Summary: The identification of structural geometries in the vicinity of fault is a difficult challenge in seismic interpretation. In this paper, we propose a quantitative numerical model of fault- related deformation. This model considers localized slip along a fault surface together with a ductile deformation of the strata away from the fault plane. This displacement is described by a compact parameterization able to represent  coalescence of several fault segments. We show how these parameters can be inverted automatically to match horizon picks in the neighborhood of faults.
