Techniques of making seismic attenuation measurements are of interest in engineering geophysics because they allow rock type and quality to be estimated. The measurements may be made on field data from spectral amplitudes, amplitude decay curves, or observed pulse broadening. With shallow seismic refraction data, attenuation is best measured from the pulse broadening. I discuss the problem and demonstrate a computer technique for making routine measurements.
