Quantitative Seismic Interpretation
Seismic data analysis is one of the key technologies for characterizing reservoirs and monitoring subsurface pore fluids. While there have been great advances in 3D seismic data processing, theExpand
Digital rock physics benchmarks - part II: Computing effective properties
We use segmented 3-D images (one for Fontainebleau, three for Berea, and one for a carbonate) to directly compute the absolute permeability, the electrical resistivity, and elastic moduli. Expand
Bounds on low‐frequency seismic velocities in partially saturated rocks
The most common technique for estimating seismic velocities in rocks with mixed pore fluid saturations is to use Gassmann’s relations with an effective fluid whose density and compressibility areExpand
Digital rock physics benchmarks - Part I: Imaging and segmentation
The key paradigm of digital rock physics (DRP) ''image and compute'' implies imaging and digitizing the pore space and mineral matrix of natural rock and then numerically simulating various physical processes in this digital object to obtain such macroscopic rock properties as permeability, electrical conductivity, and elastic moduli.

Seismic inversion for reservoir properties combining statistical rock physics and geostatistics: A review
There are various approaches for quantitative estimation of reservoir properties from seismic inversion. A general Bayesian formulation for the inverse problem can be implemented in two differentExpand
Rock-physics diagnostics of depositional texture, diagenetic alterations, and reservoir heterogeneity in high-porosity siliciclastic sediments and rocks — A review of selected models and suggested
Rock physics has evolved to become a key tool of reservoir geophysics and an integral part of quantitative seismic interpretation. Rock-physics models adapted to site-specific deposition andExpand
