Complex spectral ratio method for Q estimation

Peng Cheng and Gary F. Margrave

ABSTRACT

Based on the constant-Q theory, this article presents a complex spectral ratio method for Q estimation. Testing on synthetic examples shows that the complex spectral ratio method can obtain better Q estimates than the conventional spectral ratio method in most cases. Further investigation should be conducted using real VSP data.
