Local increase or decrease of seismic reflection amplitude. Sometimes called a bright spot (if an increase in amplitude) or a dim spot (if a decrease). Amplitude anomalies may be caused by hydrocarbon accumulation, geometric focusing, velocity focusing, interference, processing errors, or other reasons. See hydrocarbon indicator and amplitude shadow.
