1. n. [Geology]
The trend along which a particular geological feature is likely, such as a sand fairway or a hydrocarbon fairway. Prediction of conceptual fairways helps explorationists develop prospects. Along a sand fairway, for example, sand was transported and, presumably, was deposited, allowing an interpretation of the presence of reservoir rock in the fairway.
