The detection of subsurface hydrocarbon reservoirs often relies on the frequency content of 3D seismic data. Generally, it is best to use broadband seismic data for seismic interpretation, attribute mapping, and amplitude inversion. We describe an experiment in which a 3D seismic volume was made by combining different frequency bands from two overlapping 3D seismic surveys. This was done to increase the frequency bandwidth and associated resolution with respect to either individual survey.
