There are various parameterizations of reﬂection and transmission coefﬁcients for poroelastic media. These expressions are also typically non-linear. From the perspective of petrophysical inversion, non-linearity can cause an undesired extra complexity to the problem which may cause an ineffective prediction of poroelasticity. Therefore, we would like to present a framework of equations based off of previous ﬁndings of normal incidence, frequency dependent reﬂection and transmission coefﬁcients. A linearized form for these coefﬁcients would provide a computationally faster measure of inverted poroelastic parameters. Future investigations of the accuracy and precision of these inverted parameters would show particular circumstances where these inversions may be useful.
