The CDP gathers then, have been utilized in conjunction with the conditioned RMS pace box, to provide the Intercept and Gradient AVO attributes and at last create their corresponding frequency gathers with using the spectral decomposition. The frequency gathers generated with the Intercept and the Gradient from the good logs have been in comparison opposed to the frequency gathers Intercept and Gradient from the seismic. This comparability ended in an knowing of the way the method can be utilized in parts the place there's no good keep an eye on.
