Spectral decomposition is a standard tool in seismic interpretation to highlight variations in layer thicknesses (e.g., in sand channels and turbidites). This is done by examining changes in peak frequencies in extracted horizon slices (Partyka et al., 1999). Variations in peak frequencies occur due to constructive interference between reflections from the top and bottom of a layer, with lower peak frequencies indicating thicker layers.
