The ultimate goal of the work presented has been to enable some approaches to the problem of characterizing reservoirs, especially reservoirs containing fractures, using seismic data. This idea is obviously not a new one (Lynn et al., 1995). But some of the consequences of the Sayers and Kachanov (1991) method need more detailed exploration and explication, and I will provide some of that discussion in the following two examples. I first treat a fairly typical reflection seismic example, and then show how to use similar ideas in a different way for very shallow imaging and characterization.
