Wave-equation-based AVO inversion aims at getting high-resolution property models from seismic data. These property models should allow the building of reservoir models and the estimation of reserves. Wave-equation-based AVO inversion fully utilises the non-linear relationship between seismic data and the properties to be inverted for, leading to a wider spatial bandwidth than could be expected on the basis of the temporal bandwidth of the data. Also, it inverts directly for elastic parameters, giving a higher sensitivity to pore-fill than conventional impedances.
