The value of the absorption coefficient depends on the material. Absorption of elastic waves in rocks represents an important problem in seismic exploration. Absorption constants have been measured for a variety of earth materials. However, the mechanism for absorption in many types of rocks, particularly in softer sedimentary rocks or in fluid-filled porous rocks, is still a subject of investigation.
