Generalised AVO Modelling and Analysis in Isotropic and Anisotropic Media

All of the present knowledge used for prediction of elastic parameters of a poroelastic media is summarised in a Matlab GUI fluid-replacement application.

Algorithms developed for a fractured solid medium will be extended to incorporate fractured porous media and the anisotropic Gassmann substitution of Gurevich (2003). This will provide a highly accurate generalised method for AVO modelling of fractured porous rocks.
