In addition to a structural and stratigraphic interpretation, seismics offers the possibility of identifying pore fluid. Fluids are determined by analyzing how seismic reflection amplitude varies with shooting offset, a technique called AVO. With synthetic and real examples, we show how AVO works. We then review the processing and interpretation challenges geophysicists must still address to make the technique reliable.
