Seismic attribute applications and their visualization provide dynamic tools to the seismic interpreter for gaining more insight into data being analyzed. Often, workflows are developed to broaden the scope of the analysis spectrum and to help arrive at a more realistic model of the subsurface, be it in terms of understanding the tectonic evolution of a fault or a production block, the comprehension of the reservoir geobodies, or even the overall architecture of the geologic elements in the zones of interest. One such workflow entails the calculation of the root mean square values of the seismic amplitudes and phase rotation, using novel methods for their visualization for drawing meaningful conclusions. We elaborate on this workflow by suggesting better ways of covisualization of different data volumes and putting them through multidimensional seismic interpretation. Through different examples, we demonstrate the added value of this workflow and how it can result in arriving at logical conclusions in the poststack (full offset or partial) seismic domain.
