The interactive computer systems in use today allow the handling of many displays of seismic data at one time. Thus, an interpreter can look at the same data volume in various forms. Each such form is considered to be a seismic attribute. These attributes are useful in estimating the petrophysical properties associated with the seismic signal. Anything connected to petrophysics is of immense value in geophysical and geologic interpretation. Attributes can reveal features that might be missed on conventional seismic sections. For example, an attribute plot might show lateral changes along the bedding, such as changes associated with stratigraphy or with hydrocarbon accumulations.
