The Rock Physics Handbook: Tools for Seismic Analysis of Porous Media
Preface 1. Basic tools 2. Elasticity and Hooke's law 3. Seismic wave propagation 4. Effective media 5. Granular media 6. Fluid effects on wave propagation 7. Empirical relations 8. Flow and diffusionExpand
Elastic‐wave velocity in marine sediments with gas hydrates: Effective medium modeling
We offer a first-principle-based effective medium model for elastic-wave velocity in unconsolidated, high porosity, ocean bottom sediments containing gas hydrate. The dry sediment frame elasticExpand
Elasticity of high‐porosity sandstones: Theory for two North Sea data sets
We have analyzed two laboratory data sets obtained on high‐porosity rock samples from the North Sea. The velocities observed are unusual in that they seem to disagree with some simple models based onExpand
Dynamic poroelasticity: A unified model with the squirt and the Biot mechanisms
The velocities and attenuation of seismic and acoustic waves in rocks with fluids are affected by the two most important modes of fluid/solid interaction: (1) the Biot mechanism where the fluid isExpand
Critical porosity; a key to relating physical properties to porosity in rocks
Discovering accurate relations between porosity and seismic wave velocities in porous rocks has been an important topic of rock physics for decades. Such relations, if they actually exist, areExpand
Elasticity of marine sediments: Rock physics modeling
We offer an effective medium model for the elastic moduli of high-porosity ocean-bottom sediments. The elastic constants of the dry-sediment frame depend on porosity, elastic moduli of the solidExpand
Sediments with gas hydrates; internal structure from seismic AVO
We interpret amplitude variation with offset (AVO) data from a bottom simulating reflector (BSR) offshore Florida by using rock-physics-based synthetic seismic models. A previously conducted velocityExpand
Elasticity of High-porosity Sandstones: Theory For Two North Sea Datasets
We analyze two laboratory datasets obtained on high-porosity rock samples from the North Sea. The first set is from the Oseberg field and represents slightly cemented quartz sands. The second setExpand
Digital rock physics benchmarks - part II: Computing effective properties
This analysis provides the DRP community with a range of possible outcomes which can be expected depending on the solver and its setup, and falls within the ranges consistent with the relevant laboratory data. Expand
