Long-wavelength volumetric curvature attributes have become an integral part of the interpretation workflow and are extremely useful when working with structural and stratigraphic features. We present a modification of a previously introduced fractional derivative algorithm by adding a fractional integral, allowing us to calculate even longer wavelengths. This extends the available spectrum providing a variety of curvature scales. We illustrate their use by assessing an exploration area in Eastern Saudi Arabia.
