in seismic data processing there is a step of calculating the absorption represented By Q value which is Q factor , how we can estimate it from VSP ! thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have a paper or reference that your question is based on? As with all things to do with Q values, I bet there are 101+ ways of approximating the forward and inverse problems, so it'd be helpful to know exactly what case you are looking at. $\endgroup$ – Erik Mar 24 '20 at 8:54

    $\begingroup$ You migth find it here. I think the paper is free if you join, but not sure. researchgate.net/publication/… $\endgroup$ – user18590 Mar 24 '20 at 11:43
  • $\begingroup$ i need just one way that can help me to estimate the value of Q using VSP data and if there is a way without VSP you can tell me about it too , thank you ! $\endgroup$ – Djabri Josef Mar 24 '20 at 21:41
