The geophysical uplift of broadband data is widely reported as are the benefits it brings to reservoir characterisation. However there are also benefits to the qualitative interpreter which go beyond improved resolution and structural imaging. In addition to the benefits to efficiency and accuracy whilst auto-picking, the manual interpreter can gather more geological information from the texture within the data than just having improved confidence in the structural and stratigraphic image. The broad bandwidth of frequencies within the data produce a texture to the data which can highlight geological packages which may have been previously masked within conventional data. There is geological understanding and information which may be inferred and when accurately tied to well information can increase confidence in model building and help to focus further quantitative interpretation.
