In acoustic logging, the guided waves which propagate along the borehole are affected by the properties of the formation. For acoustic logging tools with many receivers, array processing methods can be used to calculate the phase velocity and attenuation of these waves. This information is crucial in estimating formation properties like permeability, transverse isotropy, and S-wave velocity.
