Four examples show functions of wavelet energy absorption

WAVELET ENERGY ABSORPTION—3This is the third of three parts on the use of wavelet energy absorption in direct hydrocarbon detection.WEA methodAt this point we have the necessary framework to combine all these concepts together into the wavelet energy absorption (WEA) method. But first, let us summarize the accumulated information.1. The lithological information encoded into the seismic signal is contaminated and distorted by the reflecting boundaries. As a result, energy attenuation properties extracted from the seismic signal itself will tend to track strong reflectors.2. The physical traveling wavelet is the carrier of lithological properties in its pure form.3. The spectrum of th...
