The level of interest in heavy-oil and bitumen reservoirs has dramatically increased in recent times. Increased production of these reservoir types has stimulated research on the properties of these reservoirs under various conditions to aid in the initial characterization of the reservoir and monitor production strategies in situ utilizing seismic data. Rock physics provides the crucial link between the physical properties of the reservoir and seismic properties that can be remotely measured; however, to this point there is not a robust model that can be used to predict or infer the properties of heavy-oil or bitumen sands from seismic...
