Abstract

Summary

Measurements of attenuation from passive seismic monitoring datasets increase in number. We provide an overview of methods that are used to determine attenuation factors using detected microseismic events. We discuss applications and advantages of using passive monitoring to characterize medium -in particular hydrocarbon reservoirs.
