Seismic Inversion, Converted-wave AVO, and Uncertainty in AVO Analysis

Published:
January 01, 2014

Abstract

Seismic reflections on a stacked section are generated from interfaces between rock layers that have differing rock or fluid properties and hence differing acoustic impedances. Their reflection coefficients are related to the impedance contrasts between interfaces. Seismic reflections can be represented as the convolution of the reflection-coefficient series with a wavelet that characterizes the seismic source. In other words, seismic reflections correspond to a band-limited reflectivity series.
