The following presentation was given by Dr. Tom Smith to the staff of Geophysical Insights; however, the subject matter is product independent, and useful to anyone seeking a better understanding of Single Trace attributes. This training video complements the course by Dr. Kurt Marfurt and others on Attributes for the Environment of Deposition, which is also available on our E-Course portal. We trust you will find this course and the other training videos available on our e-learning portal informative and beneficial. The 49-minute short-course focuses on Single trace seismic attributes, which include two general varieties: instantaneous and banded, sometimes called Wavelet attributes. The material starts with an organization of seven principal groups or types of attributes, and proceeds to set out five primary groups of Single Trace attributes, including Instantaneous, the ‘Tool Kit’ attributes, Instantaneous Layer attributes, Banded attributes, and additional Banded attributes on phase breaks. Content is supported by the mathematical basis for each attribute with the corresponding graphical illustration in the time domain. Applications of each attribute are also briefly referenced. Banded attributes are described as the intermediate between instantaneous and multi-trace attributes. The final material is a comparison of the application of different types of attributes to multi-attribute machine learning geobodies and their relative sensitivity to being miss-tied to wells.
Single Trace Attributes can be taken either with or without certification. The certification requires correct answers to 80% or greater of the questions at the end of the lesson; however, you may take the quiz as often as you like. The course contains a total of 20 questions. The certificate of completion will be presented in printable form upon successful completion of the course. Please see the with certification course if you prefer to take the course with the certification.
