Reliable analysis of time-lapse seismic data to detect movements of pore fluids requires consideration of variations in subsurface stress as well as fluid saturations. Achieving this goal requires reliable rock physics models that relate these stress changes to seismic velocity. Although there are many theories for the effective elastic properties of fractured media, only a small number directly include stress-dependence. Therefore, we have developed a new model that provides expressions that are comparatively easy to work with and requires estimation of only a small number of parameters. In this paper, we apply this model for the first time to...
