Pattern growing technique is proposed in the automatic linking of seismic horizons. The branch and bound search algorithm and the distance calculation of Gram approximate functions are used to find the best way to correlate the seismic reflectors. The experimental results in simulated seismograms and in real seismic data are quite good.
