N 016 SCALING AND SEISMIC REFLECTIVITY: IMPLICATIONS OF SCALING ON AVO FELIX J. HERRMANN Earth Resources Laboratory EAPS MIT Abstract AVO analysis of seismic data is based on the assumption that transitions in the earth consist of jump discontinuities only. Generalization of these transitions to more realistic transitions shows a drastic change in observed AVO behavior especially for the large angles currently attained by increasing cable lengths. We propose a simple approach that accounts for this anomalous behavior by renormalizing the observed AVO. This approach allows for a separation of the observed AVO effects in terms of a conventional Zoeppritz
