In a general sense, a seismic attribute is a specific measurement that has been based on seismic data. This definition includes any quantity that can be computed from a single seismic trace or a set of seismic traces. Wadsworth et al. (1953)[1] computed the first crosscorrelation between two seismic traces. From that crosscorrelation, various attributes were used — such as the maximum value, minimum value, and dip value. Such attributes based on crosscorrelation of traces give measures of similarity or dissimilarity between the two traces that were crosscorrelated.
