Broadly defined, seismic attribute studies (“attribute studies”) are attempts to use attributes derived from seismic data to predict the distribution of physical properties (e.g., porosity, lithology, bed thickness) of the strata being imaged seismically. Attribute studies may be either quantitative (i.e., the objective is to make numerical predictions of properties of interest throughout the seismic coverage) or qualitative (i.e., the objective is to find geobodies sharing similar physical properties). In either case, the interpreter must decide which attributes to derive, how to analyze the attributes, and (not least importantly) how to test the results of the correlation exercise before making...
