The structural system contains three regimes: fold traps, fault traps, and fracture traps. The classification of structural traps at the class level depends primarily on the external geometry of the trap and can be further subdivided into subclasses based on other geometric parameters such as areal extent, vertical relief, structural dip, and internal geometry. The structural classes listed below are not intended to be all inclusive but merely illustrate how the classification scheme is intended to operate.
