Tury Taner defines seismic attributes as “all the information obtained from seismic data, either by direct measurements or by logic or experience-based reasoning.” Seismic attributes typically provide information related to the amplitude, shape, and/or position of the seismic waveform. A common classification of seismic attributes consists of five categories: complex trace attributes, Fourier attributes, time attributes, windowed attributes, and geometric (also called multitrace) attributes. The last category consists of attributes calculated using more than one input seismic trace that provide quantitative information about lateral variations in the seismic data (including coherence, dip/azimuth, and amplitude gradients).
