F020 Velocity-Saturation Relation for Rocks with Fractal Distribution of the Pore Fluids T.M. Mueller* (University of Karlsruhe) J. Toms (Curtin University) & G. Quiroga Goode (Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas) SUMMARY Seismic attributes like attenuation and velocity dispersion are sensitive to the pore fluid distribution in rocks. That is because seismic waves induce local pressure gradients between fluid patches of different elastic properties and consequently induce local fluid flows that are accompanied by internal friction. This effect is known as wave-induced-flow and it has the potential to characterize the heterogeneous pore fluid distributions. In particular velocity-saturation relationships are of practical importance
