dc.description.abstractOrdinary least squares is used to investigate the ability to detect changes in physical properties using Amplitude Versus Offset (AVO) information collected from seismic data. In order to characterize vertically aligned fractures within a reservoir, this method is extended to Azimuthal AVO (AVOA) analysis. Azimuthal AVO has the potential not only to detect fractured zones, but to spatially describe the fracture strike orientation and changes in fracture or fluid properties. Depending on the data acquisition geometry, signal-to-noise ratio, and extent of fracturing, AVOA analysis can be marginally successful. A study of the robustness and limitations of AVOA analysis is therefore first classified with synthetic data. These methods are then applied to seismic data collected during an Ocean Bottom Cable (OBC) survey over a known fractured reservoir.en_US
