Abstract

Full-waveform inversion is an iterative data-fitting procedure used to resolve complex subsurface elastic property models. It has the potential to become a tool for quantitative interpretation at stratigraphic and reservoir scales. To illustrate, we make use of a geologically modeled data set, and conventional marine seismic from the Northern Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia. We utilize a data-driven workflow that mitigates bias and exemplifies interpretational constraints on inversion results.
