A fast Bayesian inversion method for 3D lithology and fluid prediction from prestack seismic data, and a corresponding feasibility analysis were developed and tested on a real data set. The objective of the inversion is to find the probabilities for different lithology-fluid classes from seismic data and geologic knowledge. The method combines stochastic rock physics relations between the elastic parameters and the different lithology-fluid classes with the results from a fast Bayesian seismic… Expand
