In a series of papers Benjamin White, Ping Sheng, George Papanicolaou and others have described the application of localization theory to the study of elastic wave propagation in randomly stratified one-dimensional (1-D) media. They describe methods for computing the localization parameters and apply the results to sonic well-log data. In this note, I will show that, at least in the seismic band, the results of their calculations disagree with effective medium theory. This disagreement may to be due to the lack of low-frequency information in exploration seismic data.
