AVO principles, processing and inversion

Hong Feng and John C. Bancroft


In this paper, we will review the basic principles of AVO and introduce some amplitude preserving algorithms. Seismic data processing sequences for AVO analysis and some algorithms for AVO inversion will be discussed. Topics related to AVO, such as rock physics, AVO modeling, AVO interpretation, and AVO pitfalls are beyond the scope of this report.
