: Seismic Attributes
Recent advances in seismic acquisition, processing and visualization enable us to extract more value from seismic data than ever before. To meet the challenges of seismic data interpretation, Paradigm has created a comprehensive library of physical and geometric seismic attributes, as well as the possibility to create user-defined seismic attributes for a specific interpretation purpose. Physical attributes may be used as direct hydrocarbon or lithologic indicators, while geometric attributes facilitate the definition of both the structural and stratigraphic framework of the seismic interpretation. Fast on-the-fly computation, multi-volume visualization, image processing through advanced merge and voxel opacity, principal component analysis and classification are some of the technics allowing an efficient usage of seismic attributes.
In this workflow based demonstration, we will show how geoscientists can use Paradigm’s seismic data attribute library to provide details of the structural, stratigraphic, and fluid framework not readily visible in normal seismic amplitude images to derive new insights about the subsurface.
