Synthetic VSP seismograms with attenuation

Linping Dong, Gary F. Margrave

Zero-offset synthetic VSP seismograms are created for a horizontally layered medium with constant-Q attenuation. These synthetic data are verified by the reflectivity from sonic and density log and also compared to the deconvolved real VSP data recording in the well from which the log data are measured. The synthetic upgoing waves are comparable to the real upgoing waves.
