AVO (Amplitude Versus Offset) analysis is a method many geoscientists may be aware of, but they perhaps do not know how the techniques are implemented and the best way to apply the technology. This E-Lecture introduces the basics of the AVO theory and how it is used to create attributes from seismic reflection data that reveal the underlying rock and fluid characteristics of the sub-surface. It uses synthetic models to demonstrate the importance of velocities and migration algorithms in obtaining the optimum seismic image for AVO and subsequent pre-stack seismic inversion analysis.
