AVO analyses of reflected seismic data over sand-filled channels

Taiwen Chen, Donald C. Lawton

Seismic reflection data over a sand-filled channel in southern Alberta and acoustic seismic reflection data over a physical model of a channel system typical of those found in the same area have been obtained. These data have been processed and studied in terms of Amplitude Versus Offset (AVO) behavior. There appear to be no pronounced AVO effect for these channels. Synthetic data were also generated to analyse the AVO effects.
