Seismic Attribute Identification through Waveform Analysis  in the Pegasus Basin, Offshore New Zealand

Roberto is investigating the effect that gas hydrates have on the seismic waveform.  Initially looking at areas with a strong bottom simulation reflector, Roberto is beginning to test out what clues can be revealed by statistically analyzing the waveform and the subtle changes in its shape and frequency.  Initial results suggest that statistical analysis of subsurface variations can provide clues into the subsurface composition, but much work remains to refine the methods and interpretation.
