Abstract

For many years geophysicists have attempted to exploit attenuation measurements in exploration seismology, because attenuation is perhaps the seismic property most closely related to the saturating fluid. The routine application of such ideas has proven elusive, however, largely because of the difficulty experienced when we attempt to measure attenuation in reflection data. Recent developments in the application of spectral decomposition methods to seismic data have opened the possibility of making further progress in this direction.
